Cabaret Artist & Stand-Up Comedian
A former English teacher, and Advertising executive, Emma is an international performance artist, who has appeared on stages across the globe. An actor, singer, dancer, burlesque artist, comedian and trapeze artist, she recently turned her hand to stand-up comedy, writing her first one-woman stand up comedy show and taking it to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it gained critical acclaim, national press attention and even an audience every night - no mean feat at the Fringe. She describes herself as a full-time feminist, a lethargic Marxist with more shoes than any woman has a right to, and an enemy of lazy, reductive thinking. Communication is her business and her passion.
