Mary-Jo Dionne

Vancouver-based writer, speaker, performer, podcaster, philanthropist, and best of all, mommy to two wee humans, JouJou and Birdie.

Mary-Jo Dionne is an award-winning writer whose work was called "A masterpiece in urban satire that will have you laughing so hard you'll glow," by the Globe and Mail. As a dabbling comedian, she’s performed in Vancouver, Toronto, New York, and LA and was a finalist for Vancouver's Funniest New Female Comedian. Her one-woman show “Glowing: A Reproduction Production” was hailed as a “real crowd pleaser” by the CBC. In print, she has interviewed notable greats like Ellen DeGeneres, Katherine Heigl, and Martha Stewart. She’s now taken her love for the art of the interview to the cyber-waves with the recent launch of “Tea with a Titan”, a weekly podcast during which Mary-Jo has tea with those people who have one thing in common: The quest for greatness despite the hurdles. Last year, Mary-Jo launched the Mary-Jo Dionne Productions Fund, which supports local children living in poverty or fighting critical illness. Learn more at:
