I started performing comedy and spoken word sets on the small-scale cabaret and comedy circuit. I premiered my debut solo show, Reshape While Damp, at the Edinburgh Fringe. Following a great reception, I took the show to FIRST: a Festival of Solo Performances, at the Tristan Bates Theatre, London. I also headlined Change, a festival of new writing for Pulse Ensemble Theatre in New York.
I’ve gone on to write and perform my own work across the UK. I enjoy experimenting with style and content and finding out what works well for audiences in different settings. My performance often incorporates monologue, spoken word and song, and my stories can be poignant, surreal and funny – sometimes all at once.
I’ve recently finished touring a story-cabaret show Truth and Truffles, performing songs and true-life stories in rural venues with storyteller Cat Weatherill.
Last summer saw a very successful 2-week run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with my solo comedy theatre show, Despite Everything, Price Still Includes Biscuits. You can currently read reviews of the show here.
The first show of the year is coming up at the Wolverhampton Literature Festival on Feb 2nd.
I’ll also be at the Leicester Comedy Festival on February 18th, You can get full details and book tickets here
I’m looking forward to running a day workshop on April 6 for Writing West Midlands on Writing Humour.
