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!

I am very excited to begin touring a brand new play THE BLADE OF BARRINGTON written by Paul Harry Allen this month! Come and hear the dastardly tale being recorded against the clock when half the cast hasn't turned up and members of the audience will have to help him out...
This week I begin rehearsing for THE SMALL LACES - which is the band for the amazing kid's show that Lorna Shaw has created! I've heard the demo's of the songs and I cannot wait to get into rehearsals and learn them!!
Full Run at The Pleasance as part of Edinburgh Fringe Festival
I WAS ON THE RADIO!!!
The marvellous Sketch, Please! invited me back to voice a lovely bunch of sketches for this months podcast, which included a very long tongue twister about breads in a northern accent. Have a listen in on the widget...
