Tell us about yourself ?
I am a comedy writer/performer hailing from London. I regularly write and perform sketch comedy, have been a Funny Women Finalist and my recent Mockumentary ‘In Love With my Life-Sized Doll: True Stories’ is streaming on the British Comedy Guide (completely autobiographical of course…) I am also a very bad vegan and will occasionally eat egg and non-dairy products on very special occasions.
How did you come up with the name of your show ?
My show is called ‘We’ve Seen Enough’ as this is something that a casting director once told me way back in the day…
Tell us a bit about your style of show
Comedy, absurd, a bit weird. A lot of multimedia thrown in there. A talking baby and a talking harp. Audience participation. A lot of fun !
What will your set be about ?
ACTRESS hasn’t had an acting job in 300 years. She’s baby sitting Casper who keeps telling her to quit. And she’s about to get dumped by her agent. Will she pull the plug and call it quits ?
‘Get a proper job, you’re almost thirty’ (mum)
‘We’ve seen enough’ (dad)
‘A breathtaking piece, on what it means to be an actor in the big smoke’ (a very close friend)
What other acts are you looking forward to seeing at The Fringe ?
I’m really looking forward to seeing a play called ‘Rob or Rose?’ Written by Henry Charnock and performed by Henry and Ellie Homer
What advice would you give to others wanting to perform at the fringe next year ?
My advice would be to plan your show really early in advance – and to start marketing your show early !
What are your favourite things about london?
I bloody love london. The underground is something I actually started fantasising over during lockdown. The buildings. The food. And all the people. I really feel like you can be anyone and do anything in london
What are your three favourite things about Camden?
First fave thing about Camden- Amy Winehouse. 2nd thing- the food 3rd thing- the art work and graffiti above all the shops and buildings
Favourite one liner you have in the show and why?
Favourite one liner in the show- ‘STOP ACTING LIKE A LAZY PIECE OF SHIT AND GO AND GET YOURSELF AN AGENT’ Because this pretty much sums everything up.
Who would be your dream audience member?
Dream audience member…You
The iconic image of the Camden Fringe is the Pigeon – if you could call this years pigeon a name to represent its style what would it be and why?
I would call the Pigeon ‘Roger’. Not quite sure why- but my director Justin Murray and I felt it was right
