Jo is a Christchurch based comedian. She placed third in the South Island RAW Comedy competition 2018 and is twice comedy Roast Battle Champion. Comedy Carnival 2019- Spirit of the Carnival, Best lineup show and most sold out shows award.

100% HAPPY is a comedy show about happiness, family, and the importance of manufacturers of basic grocery staples making realistic and defensible claims in their marketing materials. (Mainly the first two). The show was originally going to debut at the 2020 Dunedin Fringe, and after a slight delay of 180-odd days it's great to be bringing it back to where it was supposed to begin!
Happiness is relative. To be more specific, happiness is relative to Tim Müller. Scientist by day, comedian by night, quite good at making pancakes the following morning, Tim points the microscope at everything from Peppa Pig to the Robopocalyse in search of the hilarious truth. There won't be any pancakes. Not sure why I even mentioned that.
After accepting a challenge from a bag of generic-brand flour, Tim embarks on an epic journey to achieve perfect happiness, or be miserable trying. This is a show about how his life is better than yours. Objectively and beyond reasonable doubt. Most of the time.
This is Tim's second solo comedy show, following on from LAUGH NOW, GOOGLE LATER (NZ International Comedy Festival 2017). He’s a writer, performer, founder of the fresh but thriving Southern Lakes comedy scene, a well-regarded contaminated land specialist, occasional science columnist on the Spinoff, and his parents were on Country Calendar once. Some of these things are more relevant to how good this show will be than others. You can probably figure it out.
