"Are female stand-ups funny? I'd rather be seen as foreign or Irish than a woman, which might not get me more dates but hopefully will get me more gigs."
The London-based Irish comic, from Kildare, is the second only woman to win the Edinburgh Fringe Festival's stand-up comedy competition So You Think You're Funny? in 25 years. She also stars alongside Andrew Scott and Martin Clunes in ITV drama The Town later this year and is writing her first comedy film.
