As with most things, I thought I’d have a go...at doing stand-up comedy (like ya do). It all started with the Jolly Roger Comedy Record Attempt in May 2012. Oh yes, I’m still very new so don’t expect a Sarah Millican performance! Many people who know me will already know that I get drawn to the microphone at events. I think the first time I thought it was some kind of chocolate bar when I wasn’t really looking properly. Ask my opinion? I’m not one to keep those to myself! I was once at the Essex Culture Book Festival event - I met Germaine Greer there - she was on a panel with some other writers, Dave Monk from BBC Essex discussing Essex Culture (as you can expect from the title of the event). After much discussion the panel decided the stereotype of an Essex girl no longer stood. When the mic was passed around the audience for “any questions” my good friend Luisa whispered, “Go on Tracy - you know you want to”. I couldn’t think of a question BUT it was a moment I couldn’t resist. I put my hand up and was passed the mic. The audience all looked at me expecting an intellectual question. I said, “Hello, My name is Tracy and I’m from Essex.” I got a laugh and they waited for more. “No really I am...” I then went on to tell the panel that actually, yes the stereotype does still stand. And there I was, white shoes and all! More of a statement than a question really.

So I’ve been doing stand up comedy since May 2012 , did a course with New Zealand Comic Benjamin Crelin a month later to get better, and I love it!  
I’ve also been writing poetry (my “Silly Little Rhymes”) for some years now and stand up comedy has given me the confidence to start performing them! More of all this to come in 2014.
