From early 2011 I have gigged in most of the comedy clubs in London and some outside, mainly in places like Brighton, Margate, Luton, Leicester. For a year and a half I ran The Painted Grin weekly comedy night in Shoreditch with Jayde Adams and Oli Bettesworth. Before this I was an art teacher.

I have recently been asked to play a part in a Brown Eyed Boy production sketch show for TV.
‘Headlining was the delightful Janet Bettesworth, who brought with her a highly enjoyable piece of immersive comedy, drawing the audience as one to the edge of their seats with anticipation.
Zehra’s Cult Of Comedy is a welcome addition to the list of Brighton Fringe comedy nights, with a feel and tone all of its own.
