What was it that motivated you to start in stand up? Was it a gradual build up, a moment of clarity or a mix of the two?
I’ve always, always wanted to be a stand up comedian since i was a little girl. i was always a bit of a show off and i loved watching comedy on TV. Then when I was 14 i tried stand up for the first time and i was pretty much hooked from then on.

Was the concept of being a stand up as a career something that was a gradual realisation or did you have a moment of clarity and inspiration? A gradual thing I think. I had been to art college and been in bands and struggling to find my feet in a creative career. A friend suggested stand up and i had a go and it seemed to gain more momentum than other creative ventures. I’m still getting away with it. I just want to live a creative life and avoid a proper job
 
How did this show come together? Do you write desk-bound or work up ideas improvised at gigs alongside your stronger material that can support it? Yes a mixture of desk bound toil and then working on that on stage in more organic way. Then those ideas go back to the desk and are worked again. So it’s a cycle for me.
