Mandy was trained at "Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art". Although a fully trained classical actress - she decided to initially work in stand up comedy (mainly because she has a deep fear of ending up in crap fringe theatre - where actors spend a lot of their time in rehearsals running around,
exploring their inner child with the use of a silk scarf and a tambourine).
As a stand up she has headlined all over the world as well as appearing on numerous television and radio entertainment shows including: "Live at Jongleurs" and "The Comedy Store" and "The Little Big Woman Radio Show".
Mandy is the current "Time Out" Best Female Comic and was the very first female comic to compere for The Jongleurs Comedy chain.
As a television actress, Mandy appeared as a main character in Jo Brand"s "Like it or Lump it" series. She has also appeared with David Baddiel in his last series "The Baddiel Syndrome".
Her other television credits include presenting various shows including "Live Time" (A sort of Richard and Judy type show - where she held fascinating interviews with people about things like "National Cheese Week") and writing for television shows, most recently for Carlton TV"s "Des and Mel Show".
She has used her talents as both a stand up and fine character actress to perform four one-woman shows in Edinburgh, London and Sydney.
