“Wickedly funny”Henley Standard
Do you need a stand up who knows how to talk to a corporate audience and can wow women’s networks? My material perfectly fits the bill as I grab life by the lapels and ask: “Why are you doing this to me? WHY?!
What my stand up is about
A background in IT and 10 years spent at Microsoft, means that I understand the absurdity of scorecards and the pain of the Annual Review. As well as performing stand up, I’m still a freelance writer to the tech industry which means I’m current with what’s going on. I’ve even got jokes about AI!
“What a great session, had some fantastic feedback and the audience LOVED your poetry.”Emily Stewart, SAP
But it’s not all work, work, work. I cover ‘real life’ too. With two children and two decades of marriage under my belt, I’ve got plenty of material on parenting and relationships. And don’t even get me started on camping.
Where I perform
Give me a stage and a mic and I’m all yours! I’ve performed stand up in pubs and at parties, for corporates and for charities, in the afternoon and after dinner. Whatever the setting, I’ll make myself comfortable, and make sure your audience feels that way too. For bookings, contact me.
