Award winning Victoria Melody has become a pigeon fancier, northern soul dancer, beauty queen, championship dog show handler and a funeral director all for material for her theatre shows. In 2017 she embedded herself in her latest tribe – British amateur stand-up comedy – despite a surprise diagnosis and a comedy teacher telling her to give up. Her show “Professional Stranger” follow’s Victoria’s journey as she embarks on the difficult business of being funny.
