Athena is one of those rare souls that can make you gasp, laugh out loud, and think about something on a deeper level all at the same time. Making the bold leap to leave her career as a project manager to try her hand at stand up, Athena now makes regular appearances on the UK circuit and at comedy festivals. Her upcoming live dates are available here.
Her trademark style of story-telling; artfully creating tension and then cutting through it, often with something unexpectedly but hilariously ridiculous, has seen her stock rise rapidly. After performing in Johannesburg in 2017, Athena debuted her first full hour 'KMT' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival before taking her second 'Follow the Leader' on tour.
Garnering critical acclaim for her first two shows while still somewhat of a newcomer to the industry, Athena has been busy as a performer, panellist and writer for shows such as Mock the Week, Breaking the News, the Russell Howard Hour, Loose Ends and Horrible Histories, as well as hosting her own podcast, Keeping Athena Company. She has supported Daliso Chaponda, Nish Kumar, and Fern Brady on tour. She's host of weekly round-up show The Rundown
on Colourful Radio, and her Radio 4 show Athena's Cancel Culture
is available on BBC Sounds now.
