About me! me! me!
I’m a performer who straddles comedy and performance art.
I’m a surrealist who puts the camp back in communism and the fun back in feminism.
I love to make you laugh and I’m serious about entertainment.
I write and perform Queer People’s History.
I’m no spring chicken. I started out as a gallery based artist in the 90s. I gave art up for 10 years cos what I made was worthy and boring. Then I hatched my alter-eggo – Bird la Bird.
I favour the music hall tradition to gallery based peformance art.
I come from a queer femme perspective but my art isn’t just about being femme and it’s for everyone.
