I came to Japan from Manchester, England in 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I'm not working, I write satire and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check YouTube for a taste.

There's nothing funny on the internet. Everyone knows that.

That's reasonably priced for a comedy show!

They're going to be some good nights out! I'm supporting at the later Saturday show.

Don’t watch her YouTube videos on the train! You'll be laughing out loud. She’s great at making fun of herself while delivering a funny critique of the world.

Her delivery is really chill, and then pow! I like her mix of colloquial English and Japanese sensibility.
