Hi there. My name is Beth Fox and I’ve been in the stand-up comedy game for a little over a year now. I’m a drama student here at UKC and fell into comedy by pure chance as I chose a module called Popular Performance, not knowing it was about comedy, poetry and spoken word. Since then, I have organised monthly comedy gigs at Bramley’s (watch out for April’s gig) and performed a few places around campus. I was absolutely GASSED to be asked to do Funny Rabbit and broaden my comedy horizons.
I was recently told that I’m losing my hearing and all I could think of in that moment was “nice, more comedy material” so expect deaf jokes; they don’t call me Deaf Beth for nothing. Writing comedic poetry became a trait of mine a few months ago not for any reason other than people laughed more.
Olly, thanks for giving me a platform to perform on and I can’t wait to perform at the Gulb for you guys.
