The Dream On episode of my monthly humour column for RTHK Radio 3 just woke up sweating and shouting on VYP! This one’s a living nightmare and features my a funny turn by my partner in crime Philippe Joly. Sharp Pains will be back with brand new material and a few new bells and whistles in the Lunar New Year! Kung Hei Fat Choi! The soothsayers all agree we will be at it like rabbits in 2023.

Living the Dream on RTHK Radio 3

The 21st Women in Publishing Society anthology Imprint 21 will launch on International Women’s Day (March 9) at the FCC as part of the 2023 Hong Kong International Literary Festival! My recipe for disaster A Piece of Cake is among the contributions. I originally wrote and performed it as an episode of Sharp Pains, which broadcasted on RTHK Radio 3 as Bake Fail and was published in the South China Morning Post April 2022. Bake Fail was an Official Select of the 2022 On Air Fest in Brooklyn, New York, nominated for Moment of Comedy Gold by the 2022 International Women’s Podcast Awards and among the columns long-listed by the 2023 Comedy Women in Print Prize (shortlist TBA Feb 23). You can hear me performing it as a podcast below!

Also launching at the 2023 HK Lit Fest is A Book of Changes, although we haven’t been allocated a slot for that yet (probably at the Fringe Club). More anthology updates soon!

The Foot In It episode of my RTHK Radio 3 and SCMP humour column, Sharp Pains, has just flown out of my mouth and trodden on VYP! PS. I’ve got nothing to do with the choosing of photos on VYP. My choice would be the one below.

Another slice of Sharp Pains madness has hit VYP! This one’s a filthy one and aired on RTHK Radio 3 as Tea Bag

Tea Bag on RTHK Radio 3

I love tea. Some might say I’m something of a tea connoisseur. Milk and two sugars, please! But I love tea. And also making famous people make me tea when I’m bored. Here’s one I brewed earlier…

Tea Break with..?

POOF! Blown away in a hurricane to be nominated for ‘Moment of Comedy Gold‘ by the International Women’s Podcast Awards for my cheeky recipe for disaster, Bake Fail! The awards take place at The Conduit in Covent Garden, London Sept 29. Sadly, I won’t be able to attend in person but I look forward to setting my alarm for 4am (no, really!) to watch on Zoom! Thank you soooooooooo much to the IWPA judges, Amazon Music and Wondery, and the brilliant Skylark Collective!

The episode of my humour column for RTHK Radio 3, Sharp Pains, has already exceeded my wildest delusions this year after being chosen as an Official Select by the 2022 On Air Fest in Brooklyn, New York. It was published in the South China Morning Post as A Piece of Cake in June. Sharp Pains was also shortlisted for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program by the 2022 New York Festivals Radio Awards. Thanks to everyone who has followed my escapades in the SCMP, on RTHK and YouTube!
