She co-starred and co-wrote a web-series with her friend and partner-in-depressive-humor Aparna Nancherla called Womanhood. She also shined in a half-hour Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents special, which aired last year.


Jo’s debut comedy album, The Hits, covers a wide-range of topics, like yogurt, raisins, haircuts, and the “nasty business.” The Hits features an assist from Arcade Fire’s Will Butler, providing interstitial music (“like This American Life“).
