I’m a stand up comic, compere, actor, ad hoc radio talking head and writer for magazines such as the new online magazine for switched on women Standard Issue, Her Edit, as well as Psychologies Magazine‘s new blogging platform, Life Labs.
As a comic I also gig in German because clearly I enjoy a challenge! I’ve previously lived in the then Soviet Union (yes, I’m that old), Austria, Germany, France and Spain. So as you can tell I believe in having a focused life plan. As a result, I’m also one of those rare creatures – a Brit who speaks languages! After having worked and lived abroad for several years, I started doing stand up and in addition I run several comedy nights featuring all-female line ups in London and Birmingham. In addition, I organise shows for the Shout Festival, Coventry Pride and the Bradford Literary Festival.
This blog will reflect my interests – primarily me (fortunately for me I find myself fascinating), comedy as well as posts on my favourite novels and films. As an inveterate Germanophile, not surprisingly a number of German language films and novels will feature quite heavily in this blog!
