Mister Jo is an eternal child in an adult body who has a series of experiences and who always wants to "do well". He is genuine and lets his emotions betray himself in his attitudes and mimicries. Mister Jo's character is inspired from burlesque film heroes. Heroes that are themselves inspired from theatre tradition, popular circus tradition (clowns) and pantomime. Pantomime sometimes punctuated by sounds and outbursts in a simple and childish way.
Despite himself, Mister Jo causes chaos in a world defined by social or moral norms. It is a parody of our use of cell phones, a time shift, and a chain reaction. The character is propelled by his folly, his innocence, his pretentions and his clumsiness. Though absurd and irrational, Mister Jo makes us see the world as it is.
