Tell us about OLD-ish.

My show is a one-woman comedy about aging and death only way funnier. OLD-ish is about eyeing that final curtain with humour and honesty. OLD-ish’s outlook is optimistic; love, connections and laughter are the keys to aging happily and the best dodge against sickness, both physical and mental. But there it is, lurking around the corner. Is it near or is it still far in the future? Who knows? In the meantime I’m doing my best to laugh the whole way.

Describe your show in three words.

Intimate. Funny. Uplifting.

Why should someone come to see your show?

My show is fun and funny and hopeful.  We’re all getting older and if we’re lucky we will make it to OLD-ish. I am having a good time. Come along for the ride.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Golden Age Z-lister Ma Hunkel is an early superhero parody, and she’s completely awesome. She’s a sturdy middle-aged mom who dons thermal underwear and a helmet made out of a cooking pot, adopting the name “Red Tornado” to fight petty criminals in her neighborhood. Need I say more?

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Operatic Panic Attack.
