Comedian, poet, performer
Since going freelance mid-pandemic, Martha began writing and performing comedy poetry videos which satirise everything from topical headlines, the woes of internalised capitalism and being a girlboss. Her poems soon gained traction online, racking up tens of thousands of views across TikTok, Instagram and Twitter.
Her funny social media videos earned her a spot on the prestigious Funny Women Content Creator Award shortlist, alongside just 15 other creatives across the UK including Rosie Holt and Sooz Kempner.
Martha is a credited writer on the BBC Radio 4 Extra series 'DMs Are Open' and has had her comedy writing performed locally and in London. She has just debuted her new show 'SHELL' - an off-beat coming of age story with the unlikely muse of the tortoise she inherited from her grandparents - at the Hope Theatre in Islington at a sold-out run.
