About Me...

Martha is a credited writer on the first series of BBC Radio sketch show 'DMs Are Open' and she has also written for a number of publications including Country Life Magazine.

SHELL - Jersey Arts Centre

Comedy writer, poet and performer Martha MacDonald has a very noisy head… and an excruciatingly quiet tortoise. 

Martha debuted her one-woman-show SHELL - a whirligig of stand-up comedy, oversharing, poetry and heavily tortoise-themed therapy at the Jersey Arts Centre on 11 June 2022.

Listen: Martha on 'Into Words'

Martha chats to 'Into Words' podcast host Becky Lancashire about the power of comedy poetry, her own (lacking) sense of coolness and her comedic ambitions.
