April Fools Day Comedy Show tonight in West End!

  As soon as I saw the amazing Ice Cream Factory space in West End, I was mega inspired. It’s a very funky, New York City slice right in the middle of my favourite Brissie hub of all, West End.

So the fact we get to perform there tonight is very cool indeed. I’m a little curious (slash nervous!) about how it’s gonna run in a space that’s really designed for circus, but in some ways, having to march boldly into the unknown just seems kinda perfect given that that’s what improv is really all about.

Would love to see you there – a new venue means a new reason to celebrate! And you know, with bullying, neurology appointments (for my daughter) and more, it’s been quite a week. I’m looking forward to just forgetting all the crap and PLAYING!

Bullying: a personal tale

I have never publicly written or really even spoken about a couple of rather traumatic years in my primary school years, where I was bullied to the point of wanting to kill myself. Why? I guess because the main culprit did indeed apologise profusely (upon having my grandma finally discover what had been going onContinue Reading

Video of the “You’re the Voice” Comedy All Star Band Thang at Adelaide Fringe!

Huge thanks to the lovely fellow mama comic in crime Kate Burr (or more specifically, her very niceContinue Reading

Adelaide Fringe Festival Update 3 (or “No More Moshpits for Mummy”)

  I really don’t know how rockstars do it. And more importantly, why they need cocaine. Seriously, I was SO ridiculously adrenalin filled Saturday night, that I could not sleep more than a total of 4 hours over the next two days, no matter how hard my mind begged me to “do the sensible thing.”Continue Reading
