Ava Vidal's latest show finds her musing on whether Obama's election win could inspire her to greater things. Read More >
On 4 November 2008, Barack Hussein Obama made history by becoming the first black man to be voted in as President of The United States of America. Ava Vidal watched the election as one of the commentators in the ITN news studio. Unfortunately her day had not started as well and that morning she made her debut appearance in her local magistrates court.
In her latest show Vidal wonders whether she is a victim of a cruel, unequal society in which the odds have always been stacked against her, or is she just a dickhead? With a background that includes having been a teenage single mum, a prison officer and a boarding-school rebel, she brings a distinctive point of view to her comedy.
