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’m currently touring a cabaret show Truth and Truffles, performing songs and true-life stories in rural venues with storyteller Cat Weatherill.
I’ll be back at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this summer, with my solo comedy theatre show, Despite Everything, Price Still Includes Biscuits. Listen to an interview with Paul Levy of Fringe Review about my work – both writing and performing.
