Comedy writer and standup, writer of

I have been writing and editing for 15 years. After a brief stint as a stand up comic where I was heckled by truck drivers wanting to know my bra size, I began writing and editing for other comics instead. I found that by doing that, I limited the amount of abuse thrown at me for having breasts; I find that now, the breasts do me a favour as I am the first female most male stand ups have ever successfully spoken to without wetting themselves. I write a comedy blog for parents and non parents which chronicles my many parenting fails to make everyone feel better about themselves. I also write about hauling my kid around the world with a backpack and the many toilets I have fallen down along the way as well as covering the more serious topics of mental health and racism at
