How did/do you feel about turning 40? 

I thought my life was over! 

So I decided my 40's were going to be a time of trying new things. The first was going to be stand up comedy. 

Comedy was something I'd ALWAYS wanted to try... and I regretted not trying it in my 20's and 30's.... 
so i didn't want to get to my 100th birthday and have that feeling of regret again.

So I kinda had ADRENAL FATIGUE for the 3 days before I tried comedy... and the day of.... I was a sweaty, scared, anxiety ridden MESS.  

I really wanted to back out, to call up, to cancel... but I knew that soon enough, the next morning would roll around ... and the worst thing for me, would be to wake up, look myself in the eye and see a coward who backed out of doing something she'd always wanted to try.  

The 1000 gigs that followed, have all been the same for me. Scary, intimidating, fearful.... I have doubts about myself and my ability all the time. But see comedy has been this vehicle that's allowed me to realise that I'm so much more than my doubts, my fears and my insecurities.



And that's why I love doing it

Yes I love making people laugh, yes I love the experiences I've had... but how it's changed me as a person is why I'm so grateful for it.

My life would've taken on a whole different trajectory if I chickened out with nerves and cancelled all those years ago.

You can hear more about my journey in the show I'm currently touring, 40+Fabulous.  The goal for this show is to get you thinking about the things you're fearful of doing... and try one of them before you turn 100.

I look forward to meeting you!
