‘Spot the Difference’ is a new Comedy drama about adoption and family. Let’s all make a difference by helping find more foster and adoption families in the UK :-)
As CEO of this company I am so excited to be getting back on the road again!
I am writing and still developing a brand new 1 hour show about my positive adoption experience, surrounding adoption issues and why adoption/fostering is an integral and important part of society.
Already the show has been very well received at the Leicester, Swindon (sellout show) and Derby Comedy Festival. Later this year and next my team is planning a 30-venue UK tour of theatres, community centres and churches. The PR campaign and social media around this show has been increasing. Basically Adoption Arena plans to make adoption and fostering ‘normal in society and of course COOL!’. Why not catch a performance?

Joy Carter: Spot the Difference
Inventive TV comedian/actress Joy Carter presents her new theatre show about her differences. Who are we? Who are you?
Brilliant storytelling is her trademark as she explores her own adoption from Nigeria, growing up in a land where she is different and other peoples attitudes. Adoption is tragic, it’s sad, but it can be unbelievably hilarious!
Joy explains this complex stuff with her beloved flute ‘Bertie’ and is the only UK comedian to play the flute angrily! Expect the bravery and brilliance of a comedy drama.
‘So Brilliant’ Jo Brand.
‘Stories of adoption and ballet warmed and wowed me’ Arthur Smith.

CALL TO ACTION: After each comedy performance there will be a panel of local adoption and fostering specialists to talk about their work in that community, answer questions and sign up potential parents or individuals to adopt or foster.
Official show tour (provided funding is raised) September 2016 – March 2017
Which Charities am I working with so far?
I am working closely with government funded ‘The Cornerstone Partnership’ who do essential work training for social workers and parents who wish to adopt/foster and training social workers (www.thecornerstonepartnership.com).
See you at a show!
