She came. She saw. She left.
Miss Adventure was born in 2012, when Lemmy was still rocking and New York indie Summerhill Television produced an improvised skit, Miss Adventure Meets Motorhead, featuring members of the band as they performed live at Madison Square Garden. The episode broadcasted on Funny or Die, where it (briefly) became the ‘Highest Rated Video – All Time‘ in 2014. It remained among FoD’s Highest Rated Videos until 2016 and piloted on Comedy Central.
Since 2014, I’ve performed as ‘Miss Adventure‘ in regular comedy broadcasts on Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK). These slots have included cold calling Hong Kong businesses with unusual requests, psychic shenanigans as Miss Adventure Friend to the Stars and interviews of a spoofed and occasionally genuine variety. I’ve reported as ‘Miss Adventure’ from live events, including the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens.
The first episode of my monthly humour column Sharp Pains broadcasted on RTHK Radio 3 Sept 29, 2020. It was shortlisted for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program by the 2022 New York Festivals Radio Awards. The Bake Fail episode was also chosen by the 2022 On Air Fest in Brooklyn, New York, as one of their Official Selects and nominated for Moment of Comedy Gold by the 2022 International Women’s Podcast Awards in London.
I’ve written & performed (as Miss Adventure) in comedy sketches with Philippe Joly and began producing & presenting a mockumentary, Fake News. I’m also writing and acting (as Mrs. Sharpe-Payne) in a series of comedy podcasts, Meet the New Parents, a spin-off of Sharp Pains, inspired by my ‘3 Terrifying Short Stories‘ that were published in the festive edition of the SCMP’s Post Magazine Dec 2021.
From Nov 2018 – April 2021, I wrote a monthly column as Miss Adventure: ‘Friend’ to the Stars for Hong Kong Buzz. Since Nov 2020 I’ve written humour for the South China Morning Post (SCMP).
The ‘Miss Adventure‘ theme music was composed by Ryan Stanton and performed by The Peppermint Apes. Nick Samuel composed the soundtrack for Fake News.
