ACTRESS * COMEDIAN * MUSICIAN * WRITER

I am an actress, musician, and attempting to be a comedian. I have worked on the West End, Number 1 UK Tours, performed at regional venues, host my own radio sketch show "Literally Comedy" - the only show to be set in my very imaginary bookshop...I think?!, run my own comedy club - Variety of Kings, have written for hit show NewsRevue, ran my own award-winning production company (well, we won the Ideas Tap Best 60 Second Parody Award) where we developed comedy shorts, write a poetry blog under the guise of fictional character Deirdre called "Deirdre Does Poems", have run three London Marathons, as well as being the guitarist in award-winning all-girl Rock'n'Roll band The Daisy Chains (Winners of The London Vintage Awards, Finalists of The National Vintage Awards). I began comedy about two and a half years ago, and I'm having an absolute blast!
