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.
