Lebenase Essex Comedian

This is a title I did not think I would have as I completely fell into comedy by accident. I was on maternity leave with my second baby and found that I had become a blob of matter….. I had lost all banter-ability.

Yup, so I went to Camden Comedy School and thought that would get me out the house and give me back some brain power…I never intended to be a comic. In fact, after standing in front of the group during the second week of the course I went outside and threw up.

4 years later and I have done more than I ever imagined!
