Zoë has performed stand up comedy extensively in Australia, London and New York. Her solo show, Trigger Warning, won the 2016 Melbourne Comedy Festival Award for Most Outstanding Show as well as the Golden Gibbo, and two Green Room Awards. It was also nominated for Best Show at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Drama.
Since 2013 Zoë most frequently appeared in comedy circles (including in Trigger Warning) as Dave, a retrograde male comedian with a neck beard. But in 2018 she appeared as herself, sans Dave’s neck beard, with her hit festival offering Bossy Bottom. The show saw Zoe nominated for Best Comedy Performer at the Helpmann Awards and won her a prestigious Herald Angel Award in Edinburgh. In 2020 Bossy Bottom was filmed and internationally released on Amazon Prime Video.
Since filming her Amazon special, Zoe squeaked in a flying visit to support Hannah Gadsby in San Francisco and Los Angeles for her Netflix taping, performed Bossy Bottom in LA, debuted a new show Agony! Misery! in Perth and Brisbane, co-hosted Sydney Mardi Gras for SBS and created new works in iso for the Stan Comedy Lockdown series and Melbourne Fringe’s VCR Fest. Phew.
You can catch Zoe making a semi-regular meta-mess on The Weekly with Charlie Pickering in 2021.
