“Comic genius! She’s Eddie Izzard with less make-up and more Glasgow”


I have performed stand up comedy since 1998.
I have toured across Scotland, the wider UK comedy circuit, Ireland and Central Europe.  I have performed in comedy clubs, dive bars, large theatres, small theatres, a bus, a boat, the street, a graveyard, a lift (USA elevator) and in someone’s living room. No, it wasn’t my mum’s living room, it was an actual gig at a private party in a posh living room in the New Town, Edinburgh.

I have performed in all the major comedy clubs in the UK including The Comedy Store, The Stand, The Frog & Bucket, The Hyena, The Laughter Lounge, The Belfast Empire, Jongleurs, Highlight and
The Gilded Balloon.

“Electric stage-presence; a genuine delight”

When I started out I reached the semi-finals of all the major comedy competitions for So You Think You’re Funny, The BBC New Comedy Awards and The Daily Telegraph Open Mic.  I reached the final of Take The Mic – a large cash prize competition run by The Scottish Sun.

Murphy acts with 100mph hilarity with her electric stage-presence and her host of characters and sketches. Her show purportedly covers the history of motion pictures but somehow manages to squeeze in a Weakest Link- Style Film Noir competition, a ‘Name-That-Quote’ round, a Wizard of Oz-style sing-a-long and a celebrity puppet show. This magnificent production is a genuine delight and Murphy’s charisma so exuberant that I even found myself singing along at one point. Go and see this show right now; you won’t regret it
“Silver Scream”

I am currently touring my one-woman Robert Burns inspired show,
Mice & Women. And my brand new show for Fringe 2015,
Murphy’s Law, is in development.
