Fiona was brilliant, funny, charming, entertaining. She even did a couple of housekeeping things that I asked her to do as MC without complaint and understood the importance for our industry that those announcements be made. She had the audience in fits not only the night she performed but the following night, when delegates were overheard repeating her tales in the bar at the convention centre. It was wonderful to have a local tell local stories in Alice Springs but I would hire Fiona anywhere and anytime.... she is Gold!!!

A late starter; but with an award winning career of almost 15 years, Fiona plays to packed houses in venues and festivals across the globe. Winner of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s (MICF) Best Newcomer Award in 2001 – her career has gone from strength to strength ever since.
