Demo Reel

Horror. Filmmaking. Comedy.



Hi! I’m Jo Anna Van Thuyne. I’m an actor, comedian, and producer from Philadelphia now living in New York studying at The Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center. I am the creator of the web series Mezza Morta and the host and producer of the podcast Apocalypse…Now?

I’m currently in pre-production for my upcoming 4-part web series, Mezza Morta. You can learn more about the project by visiting

After graduating from LaSalle University, my behind the scenes career started with ShadowBox Pictures as their associate producer working on a number of commercials. I’ve gone on to work on various projects like The Suspect and worked closely with Woodshop Films to help them produce quality online content.

I moved to New York in 2016 and completed the core curriculum at the Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center in New York City and was accepted into the Advanced Program. I also trained with Penny Templeton of The Penny Templeton Studio.
