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.
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 and I will be back this summer. I also toured a story-cabaret show Truth and Truffles, performing songs and true-life stories in rural venues with storyteller Cat Weatherill.
The first show of this year was at a great Fringe day in the Wolverhampton Literature Festival, followed by a lovely audience in the Leicester Comedy Festival at the Cosy Club.
I’m very pleased to be at the Buxton Fringe for the first time this summer (July 12, 13 & 17 – details to follow)
