"One of the brightest stars to be zooming upwards in Wales at the moment"
"Absurdly Talented" Phill Jupitus
"Funny as Fuck"
John Cooper Clarke
"Clare Ferguson-Walker has bite and tenderness, can be as raw as a wound then as funny as any stand up. She's warm, funny, clever and always accessible".
Matt Harvey (Radio 4)
Clare's one woman show "California Scheming" had its debut at the 2015 Edinburgh fringe festival.
One woman's poetic narrative about a lifelong fascination with America, a not so secret dream to hit the big time and what happened when she finally got to Hollywood. Not quite the young starlet anymore, but a (ahem..late thirty something) Mum with 2 kids! Hear tales of puking in Beverly hills, meeting and running away from sex obsessed performance artists and finding the American dream to be a cheap plastic gold painted oscar. This ultimately uplifting tale sees cultures clash, priorities lost and found and near nervous breakdowns in a rental car. It is as funny as it is thought provoking.
Praise for California Scheming
