Athena has been performing stand-up comedy since Spring 2012. A 2015 BBC New Comedian of the Year finalist, Athena is a comedian with intelligent, thought-provoking jokes that still have an edgy sting. This year, she took her second solo show, KMT, to Edinburgh Fringe to 4 and 5 star reviews. By invitation she’s written for BBC Radio 4 (News Quiz) , performed on BBC Radio Scotland (Funny Kind of World), guests on BBC Five Live and will be performing at the Johannesburg Comedy Festival. Her unscripted wit hasn’t gone unnoticed; in 2016 she featured in a BBC3 Future Films production, was invited by internet super producers Astronauts Wanted to guest in their series Girl on Girl and asked by the Pool to contribute her take on the question ‘Can men be funny?‘ She also had a lot to say in The Pool’s ever popular Kitchen Table podcast.
