I discovered an aptitude for this during a short ‘Funny Women’ course I attended with Clean Break in 2007. I made an impression at the end of course showcase and in subsequent years have been invited to perform at many events including a gig at HMP Holloway.
My act is autobiographical in nature and in recent years has become more specific to issues relating to mental health and ageing. This has resulted in several bookings at various mental health events and festivals along with appearing at events promoting positive ageing.
Aside from the above I enjoy performing in a more conventional comedy club environment and have appeared in numerous collaborative inter-generational and solo shows at several fringe festivals.
I also write and perform my own comedy songs using a ukulele as accompaniment, which means that as well as performing a straight stand-up set I can deliver a musical set or a combination of the two. My musical act has been well received within a variety of settings including comedy, cabaret and both indoor and outdoor music events.
