Jody is a Sydney based comedian, writer and events organiser. She has been performing her comedy now for two years and has appeared at numerous festivals throughout Australia. She has toured her first solo comedy show, White Trash Lesbian, to Feast in Adelaide, Mardi Gras in Sydney and Brisbane Pride (where opening night was a sell-out).

Apart from her comedy she also organises and MCs the very successful Green Kitten Open Mic, which showcases community comedians, poets and writers.

Her comedic opinion pieces appear in the street press, and her stand-up comedy course for beginners, “Comedia” has been included in the program of four Sydney community colleges.

Jody has been heard on 2Day FM as a semi finalist in their Comedy God Contest, and also on RadioWise’s “Home Grown Humour”, syndicated Australia-wide.

Jody has appeared on QueerTV on Foxtel and on various community radio programs. She is also excited to be the resident comedian at Turtle Cove’s Womyn’s Week this October.

Jody can be booked to host or perform at community events, open-mics, corporate gigs and private appearances and will travel!

"Jody's modern lesbian take on the world is mixed with equal proportions of honesty, humility and self-deprecating humour which quickly disarms even the most skeptical and conservative members of her audience.”

Jody was both clever and funny, a feat some other comedians are trying to piece together.” – Jonas Holt, Pear Shaped Comedy

“Ekert’s tales prove truth is queerer than fiction .”
