Fiona Coffey is a writer and performer who made her debut on the London cabaret scene in 2015 with A touch of Mrs Robinson, a self-penned musical tribute to her leopard-printed alter ego. This show has been performed over forty times across the UK, including a highly successful run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe. She returned to Edinburgh in 2018 with the critically acclaimed Honey’s Happening, inspired by the world of suburban hostesses which populated her childhood. Honey’s Happening retains the spirit of thought-provoking fun which permeated Mrs Robinson, but is an exciting new departure in its chosen form of immersive comedy theatre. The success of these shows opened the door to a writing and performing career, which now includes cabaret hosting, acting, comedy writing and reviewing for the New York based Cabaret Scenes magazine.
