Jodie van de Wetering is a writer, performer, and generator of creative mayhem based in Rockhampton. For the last five years she has run Allsorts, an all-welcome, open-access event creating opportunities for new and emerging Central Queensland performers from stand up comedians to singer-songwriters.
She spent 15 years with the ABC as a reporter and broadcaster, and is also the editor of Rocky Street Press, a fledgeling online arts and culture magazine covering the CQ region and rural and regional Australia more broadly.
One of her projects with ABC Wide Bay in Bundaberg was Upson Downs, a five-part serialised radio comedy produced in collaboration with a local theatre company. That, combined with nerdy comedy interests like I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again, planted the seeds for what's now become Rocky Radio: Live on Stage.
