Comedy!

I love comedy! For many years I have worked hard at developing my craft as a stand-up artist & comedy actress. 

I have written & performed my own material in sketches & comedy plays. I have also been delighted to appear in comedy on the radio, in the theatre & also on TV. My material brings to life black characters from diverse backgrounds. It's my belief that comedy helps to narrow cultural divides and enhances a greater understanding through the medium of laughter - also laughter is really therapeutic!


I've hosted a New Comedy Talent Show at Club Cuba in Manchester. The aim was to showcase new talent & provide a platform for budding comedians to develop and grow in a comfortable forum. I've also been the compere for the Laughing Calves Comedy Show at Manchester's famous Frog & Bucket and I also hosted a Charity Comedy Night at Vanilla Nightclub in Manchester's gay village.


I have created some great comedy characters such as Florence, the West Indian Lesbian, Clarissa the Air Jamaica Stewardess, Floella the African Hairdresser & Jo the Black doctor who has been brought up in the UK, went to private school & does not have much idea of 'street' culture!


I have included a short compilation of some comedy scenes.......
