A Jersey girl by nature and New Yorker by choice, Joanne moved to the big city after receiving a degree in theatre from Rider University. An early audition led to several years performing in Off-Broadway’s ‘The Awesome 80’s Prom’ and an Actors Equity card. Filled with a ‘why-not’ attitude and deluded amount of self-confidence, Joanne decided to enter the Miss New York USA pageant in 2013, and then, decided to win. Through the experience, Joanne gained media exposure and an opportunity to co-host Fox News Channel’s late night satirical show ‘Red Eye.’ So, she happily quit bartending and began a new career writing and appearing on camera for the cable news network. When asked to join ‘The Greg Gutfeld Show’ as a millennial correspondent, Joanne happily obliged, creating sketches fondly known as “Millennial Moments.” With a need to scratch her theatrical itch, Joanne concurrently originated and performed the role of the Bachelorette in the Off-Broadway experience called “That Bachelorette Show.”
Joanne enjoys acting, writing, and making audiences laugh. Her future children will be named Emmy, Oscar, and Tony, in honor of the three awards she will undoubtedly acquire in her lifetime. She will only be satisfied with her career after receiving a Kennedy Center Honor for her contribution to the arts…and she will celebrate with a bottle of bubbly.
