Maggie Gordon-Walker

Finalist in the Funny Women Awards 2006

Maggie has flirted with comedy throughout her career, mostly through sketch shows, including Parsons and Naylor's TBA at The Gate and Variety Nights with Isoceles Comedy Company at the Theatre Royal, Stratford East many moons ago. Finally fed up with being at the bottom of the decision heap as an actor and in reality spending far too much time as a market researcher, she turned to comedy 2004. Venues she's performed at include: The Comedy Store, Downstairs at The Kings Head, The  Comedy Cafe, Amused Moose Camden, Battersea Barge, Balham Banana, Laughing Horse Soho and Ginglik.

She performed for several years in Sketch Club - Downstairs at the Kings Head for Pepperstock, purveyors of the highly successful Comedy 365 podcast and Channel 4's 'Pets'.
She prefers to appear as somebody else - her two main personas to date are Mary Christmas, with her self-help group for singles entitled 'Get Laid' and Margo Crabstick, an alcoholic, lecherous Edinburgh Festival reviewer.

Mary Christmas can be viewed at www.youtube.com/MaryChristmasxx, followed on twitter @MaryChristmasxx , on Facebook or blog http://marychristmasxx.wordpress.com  
Maggie’s greatest comic manifestation to date was meeting Archbishop Rowan Williams at her mother's ordination and trying to engage him in Bishop and Actress banter.

Credits include:

She appeared as Margo Crabstick for the Funny Women final at the Comedy Store and the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh.

She performed with Ian Angus Wilkie as Wilkie & Walker for RAW at the Joogleberry Playhouse and with her company Livestock (www.livestock.org.uk) at the Hare and Hounds with YOICKS! for the Brighton Fringe 2008.

Presenting as Mary Christmas for Friendly TV, Sky Digital and for BAGGAGE RECLAIM on Resonance FM Radio

Founder member of Fluxx, the improvised theatre group, who created 'La Ronde-Improvised'. Fluxx has performed around Britain, in Athens, Paris, Atlanta, at the International Impro Festival in Amsterdam and the Shifti Festival at Warwick Arts Centre.

'YOICKS delivered the most original and entertaining comedy I have seen so far this festival - The Black Sheep, Wilkie and Walker, Mark Katz and special guests proved a winning combination. Maggie Gordon-Walker -spot on, brilliant as Margo Crabstick.' - Three Weeks, Brighton Fringe 2008

Margo Crabstick: ‘The shows Margo told the audience she went to review included a performance called 17 Bisexuals and a Bassoon, which got a roar of laughter from the audience. It was a performance that will appeal to audiences who are familiar with life at the Edinburgh Festival.’ Inside Comedy for Funny Women semi-final June, 2006

Mary Christmas: ‘In silver-pinned headdress, Mary's dressed to allure: 'A stranger's just a husband in disguise'. A well-formed and written set littered with sharp gags, many of them subtly filthy.’ Fringe Report, 2004
The Black Sheep: ‘Delightful images are conjured up by the talented cast of the improvised storytelling show FairLy Tales. Sitting somewhere in the Venn diagram overlap of comedy, theatre and kids' entertainment, this is a magical and entertaining way to start the day. FairLy Tales is warmly funny - and many of the yarns spun reduced the technician and cast members sitting out that scene to laughter. A clear indication of the genuinely improvisational nature of what was being created. Worth getting up in the morning for.’ Chortle ‘C’ Edinburgh, 2002

Holy Days: ‘Each actor delivers an entertaining and funny performance. Maggie Gordon-Walker however steals the show with a Mary Magdelene combining raunch and a Mae-West-quality delivery of glorious one-liners ('Jesus, if you're going to give me a sermon, make it the Sermon On The Mount'). If Mary Magdelene's statue subsequently attracts more prayers than normal at churches during Advent, it will be for entirely the wrong reasons.’          Fringe Report, 2003

The Naked Truth: ‘It's a staging of four interlocking monologues inspired by real interviews, and they certainly achieve a high degree of naturalism and believability, managing to be both touching and funny, with the character of Lisa - played by the show's creator Maggie Gordon-Walker - as the stand out performance.’ Three Weeks Brighton Fringe, 2009
