Her “slick delivery” (North Westend) took her to several prestigious stand-up competition finals including The Leicester Square Theatre Comedy Awards and The Funny Women Awards.
Her show ‘The Year My Vagina Tried to Kill Me’, about her experience of the chronic disease endometriosis, had a sell-out run at Manchester’s SICK! Festival and a successful northern tour.
