It’s been a long time between shows for Irene and the intervening years have seen her go through a number of significant life altering changes. Irene has been in Metamorphis.

Losing 30kgs in weight and deciding to become a born again fitness fanatic has seen the emergence of a smaller but even more cynical Irene. “Sure it’s been good to lose the weight but I have to say I’ve never been more miserable. They were my best 30 kgs…”

After 5 years living in London Irene was in debt, with a depressed husband and a nasty case of stage fright. Something had to change. Having to admit that her C+ approach to life had netted her C+ results she decided to move back to New Zealand and rebuild her chrysalis.

“Metamorphosis” is Irene’s first solo stand up show since she was nominated for the Billy T Award in 2001.

As a guest on TV3’s 7Days and on Radio New Zealand National’s “The Week That Was”, Irene is known for her intelligent humour and insights. Strongly opinionated from her first letter to the editor at age 12 (Dear Sir, Why is the world so sexist?) Irene has had a good long talk with herself and some of those opinions have changed. Chances are she’ll change her mind during the show and with a little bit of luck; she’ll change a few other minds in the process.

Seen locally on TV3’s AotearoHA and TV2’s Comedy Christmas Gala alongside Comedy Central’s Bits, Irene has been a finalist for the NZ Comedy Guild Best Female since returning from the UK in 2005. With a new outlook and a new attitude for 2010, perhaps this will be her year.

Irene has been a regular part of the Comedy Festival’s Divas and has toured the country with The Lady Bunch. The beginning of 2010 has her as part of the comedy show during the World Buskers Festival and performing Metamorphosis at the Dunedin Fringe Festival.

With this as the premier of this new show, there will undoubtedly be changes; it’s in Irene’s nature. She’s simply in a constant state of flux and as an accomplished comic there’s little doubt that Metamorphosis will be the revealing and hilarious result.
