Jo-Jo Bellini – This And That – A Late Night Tasty Delight (Jo-Jo Bellini)

Jo-Jo Bellini

Jo-Jo Bellini bursts into the room oozing with confidence and does not stop. A striking figure in red silk dress and sparkling jewels, Jo-Jo proves to be the perfect host: cheeky and full of charm, she sings loud and proud to Tom Jones classics, all while cooking up a delicious storm (samples are provided) and dancing with great enthusiasm; this is multi-tasking on another level. Her cabaret style vocals and exaggerated expressions up the comedy factor, and the songs are carefully chosen for their lyrical relevance to the stage of cooking. Utterly bonkers, and at times rip roaringly hilarious, plus, Jo-Jo’s erotic use of butter and vegetables is something to behold. Nigella Lawson eat your heart out.

The Stand Comedy Club 3 & 4, until 16 Aug.
