Funny Women Awards 2013 Finalist – Tevashnee

Tevashnee Thenjiwe Moseley talks here about her stand up career:

"I have always seen the funny side of things and enjoyed watching comedy and being the center of attention, and the idea of being on stage performing stand-up comedy always appealed to me.

"When I moved to England from South Africa nine years ago, that was a dream I had to forget about because I never thought the English would find me funny, and I needed a real job because life is very expensive here.

"It was last year when I decided to give comedy a go and I have never looked back. When I got on stage for the first time I did not think that within a year I would have resigned from my job as a lawyer to do comedy full time.

"To say I am excited would be an understatement! The Funny Women Awards have opened many doors for me, through it I was spotted by South Africa’s queen of comedy Celeste Ntuli, I am currently on tour as her opening act for her one woman show 'Myself'.

"I am looking forward to the final."
