Tamar may look like a life-size Polly Pocket. But this year she has jumped out of a plane, performed stand-up naked and opened several jars without any help from boys. As heard on BBC Radio 4, and following the success of All By My Selfie in Edinburgh, Adelaide and Lithuania, award-winning comedy-songwriter Tamar returns with a show about growing up in miniskirts and turning out tougher than the seams. 'Lightning-fast comedic strokes, side-splitting timing, an impressive set of pipes' ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). 'Effervescent energy and easy charm' **** (RipItUp.com.au). 'I predict a great future' (Michael Palin).

Tamar may look like a life-size Polly Pocket. But this year she has jumped out of a plane, performed stand-up naked and opened several jars without any help from boys. Following the success of her solo show All By My Selfie in Edinburgh, Adelaide and Lithuania, award-winning comedy-songwriter Tamar returns with a brand new show about growing up in mini-skirts and turning out tougher than the seams.

From failed attempts to become a beach babe, to battling with wombats, Tamar sings us through her weird and wonderful adventures on the other side of the world, which all began when she was caught shouting at a self-service checkout. A remarkable and unique storyteller, this up-and-coming female comedian combines original songs, anecdotes and stand-up to create a narrative musical comedy show which is totally fresh and unique. Brave New Girl is about the experiences that can stop us from believing in our dreams, and the life-changing ways in which we can get them back.

Last year, Tamar was chosen to appear on BBC Radio 4's Fresh From The Fringe, a showcase of the best new comedy acts from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014. She was also winner of the Stiles & Drewe Best New Song Award 2014, the most prestigious competition in the UK for new musical theatre composers.

Tamar trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama and is currently directing a musical comedy project at LAMDA. Her recent gigs on the comedy circuit include Get Stuffed, Krater Comedy, Isle of Wight Festival, Soho Comedy Club, Funhouse Comedy, Backyard Comedy Club and Funny Women.

Tamar is a finalist in this year's Amused Moose Laugh Off, due to take place in Edinburgh in August. Her television credits include Lee Nelson's Well Funny People, The Bill and Doctors.
