One woman, one audience member, no script. This is a crazy experimental and exciting idea I’ve had for a while but have only just gotten the guts to make happen! In developing the idea I’ve employed the help of the fantabulous TJ Mannix – Head of the New York Musical Improv Festival and an all round legend I was very excited to meet last year during my mad overseas jaunt. Anyway, the resulting show will be launching this Friday night at the amazing Queensland Cabaret Festival! It’s one night only and tickets are 20% off if you book online. Would…

So due to popular demand – i.e. one person on Facebook asking me, yes I really am that cheap – I am so stoked to be bringing my ridiculous spontaneous cabaret shenanigans to my soulmate city, Melbourne!

I’ll be working on developing “Viking Mama” as a web TV series, after which I’ll be returning to pitch it in full to the ABC.

I don’t think I’ve changed so rapidly in my entire adult life as what I have in this past year and a half. Something in me has shifted. In such a huge way. In, I think, I hope, a really positive way. It’s been excruciating and wonderful and terrifying and exciting. I’m not at all where I thought I would be, I’m not even climbing the ladder I thought I was dedicating my life to, but this new ladder, this new place where I find myself, feels better. “Have you heard of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?” “Yes.” “Have you heard…
