My self-summary
It's my life ambition to have an indoor swimming pool.
What I’m doing with my life
I do comedy. For quite a few years now. Stand up, sketches, songs, writing and performing. I've done 3 full runs at the Edinburgh Festival, including a full length musical and a one woman stand up show. Working on a sitcom now.

I also work for a study abroad provider. Mainly this means broadening American student's knowledge of British culture. (Marmite, Jaffa Cakes, Metro Rush Hour Crush)

That philosophy degree from Durham has been really useful.
I’m really good at
Giving advice. Walking fast. Playing on 2p machines. Not losing things (not losing objects, I lose games all the time). Karaoke. Being clever. Being stupid. Never getting bored. And to cap it all, I have a grade 1 in violin.
The first things people usually notice about me
At first people think I'm very sweet and smiley. But actually I can be a bit cynical and quite sweary. Fuck off. It's all part of my charm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: HP (all of them), Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman, Life of Pi, Are you Dave Gorman? Marching Powder.

Films: The Matrix, The Shawshank Redemption, Catch Me If You Can, Apollo 13, Clueless, Airplane. Not so keen on horror.

TV: 30 Rock, Orange Is The New Black, Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, Malcolm In The Middle, Peep Show, Flight Of The Conchords, Homeland, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny. And Pointless is pretty brilliant.

Music: Muse, La Roux, Daft Punk, Maroon 5, Fleetwood Mac, Nero, SubFocus, David Guetta, Not jazz. I can feel you judging me.

Food: Chocolate- it can be bars, biscuits, cakes or anything, I'm a stereotype woman. Carbonara. BBQ's. Chicken Katsu Curry. Burritos. Not red onions. They're evil. They taint everything they touch. And goat’s cheese, goat’s cheese can fuck off too.
The six things I could never do without
City Breaks, Netflix, Lie in's, Bread, Water, Fancy Dress Parties
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When did they stop doing toys in cereal boxes and how didn't I notice?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about. Activities vary. I have found, as I've got older, that the weekend isn't just about getting drunk. Although, often it still is and the recovery time has increased considerably.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You've Been Framed rocks my world.
You should message me if
You're intelligent, and principled but ultimately your tastes are quite low brow. I recently went to an art exhibition because it had a room full of balloons. That's where my level is at.
