‘When I was 12 years old, I stepped on stage with 140 other young people as part of the Cumberland Gang Show which was a Scout and Guide show at Parramatta Riverside Theatre. It filled me with so much joy to be making people laugh and smile by being up on stage. I couldn’t see any of their faces because they were in the dark and I was in the bright lights.

‘When I was doing a comedy sketch on stage and I was making people laugh, I was addicted to stand up from then.

‘As a creative person who doesn’t have the security of a regular income, I feel like the toughest thing for me is knowing where my next thing is going to be. Often I don’t know where that is. I pretend and people believe me sometimes and give me lots of money to do it but I just don’t know where those opportunities lie.’

If you could give one bit of advice to people, what would it be?

‘Keep it real. Be honest. Honesty is always the best policy when you’re doing comedy or when you’re doing anything.’
