A massive Take That fan and very spiritual in her spare time, Madge is a stand-up comedian who started performing in March 2010.
Outside of the London open mic circuit, she has taken her act as far north as Newcastle, as far east as Ipswich, as far south as Bournemouth and as far west as Taunton. She has also done a few paid 10s, the odd open spot for Mirth Control and is a regular on the Margate comedy scene.
In July 2012, she was listed as a Recommended Act by Funny"s Funny as showing "great potential and worthy of recognition in a national competition".
"… captured the audience the moment she set foot on the stage, with a wonderfully understated performance of intelligent and quirky material. She was a firm favourite of the audience. Her delivery is very confident and measured and you just know there is a lot more to come." - (Keyna Doran, Creative Cows, Chipping Campden, April 2012)
"… expertly putting the audience at ease and leading proceedings" - (View Online, Dorset, May 2011)
"… floors the room with her professional attitude and well-honed persona. Taking a relaxed approach to audience participation, Hooks’ set is full of the everyperson humour of successful acts such as John Bishop, and she is the first act of the evening to employ advanced techniques such as callback, roleplay, and prop gags – to great effect and reception." - (Giggle Beats, Newcastle, February 2011)
"… hilarious from start to finish" - (The Guestlist Network, London, January 2011)
Madge is currently available for 10-15 minute spots and compering.
