She had a recurring role as Fiona Kennedy, a forensic pathologist, in the penultimate and final season of procedural comedy drama New Tricks (2014-2015). She has also written comedy sketches and sitcoms for BBC Three, Harringham and Harker. Oberman starred as Rebecca in the Netflix series The Life of Ricky Gervais and Helen Chalmers, Sky One’s comedy drama Code 404.
Since 2008, she has appeared on several radio sketch shows and played three sisters on Hope Street with Diane Samuel. She also appeared in Tracey Ullman’s show Tracey Breaks the News (2016-2018).
She co-wrote The Three Sisters on Hope Street with playwright and neighbour Diane Samuels. It is a reinterpretation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, adapted from the events in Liverpool during the Second World War and cast as the Pozorov Sisters, three Jewish Englishwomen. Combined with Fatiha El Ghorri and Katherine Atkinson, regional finalists for the Funny Woman Award 2017, El Khorri shatters Muslim stereotypes in this hour-long stand-up challenge, asking you to rethink everything about Islam and Muslims you think you know, while Atkinson takes a biting side view of motherhood and why she’s being harassed.
Faye Treacy is a comedian and musician who won best newcomer at the 2015 Musical Comedy Awards. She writes that recent events show that there is still a long way to go before men in the music world start treating women better, and suggests that it runs parallel to the comedy world, although she adds that comedy is not as institutionalized as music.
For example, there was a fat-headed buddy of mine who sent me bad porn when we were young, and I didn’t want him to lose his teaching job, so I decided to report him, and we had to deal with it. Growing up a Catholic, I used to be called the worst thing ever because I was gay, but I realised I liked girls just as much as boys, which was a hard insight and insight that I hated myself for when I was younger. But it worked out and I’m still playing with a great band of musicians and I’m proud to say I’ve got an up-and-coming comedy career.
Now I’m working on my own show at the Fringe this year, directing Faye Treacy’s debut solo show, which takes place in August. And I’m also working on a session behind the scenes with a pop rock / reggae band. And while I’m still doing comedy, I’m incredibly grateful that I have to bridge those two creative careers.
I’ll be back at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. Ticket sales will begin in the coming weeks and I will confirm the venue and time as well as the new show title shortly. I love writing about shows like this, so I’ll probably put some work-in-progress data in my diary.
My new solo show, entitled The Eternalist, will be screened in the coming months. It will be my fifth solo show and after completing a work-in-progress show, I’m really happy with it and can’t wait to get started. What better way to celebrate US Independence Day than by watching my new show in Edinburgh, Come Be Hilarious with Faye Treacy, for free in a cool, hip London pub downstairs?
Fraser Gibson’s debut show wrestles with the selfish pursuit of being a stand-up comedian. An hour of musical comedy, jokes and references to the heads of film fanatics.
There is no shame in not doing the best at every moment. Mussels and individual Glenmorangia are smashed at certain times. See how the tip shows the Celebrity Farm Lucky Star is reserved for candidates with the most embarrassing celebrity bodies.
As the series progresses and Faye Treacy shares her stories, you realise she’s tougher than she looks. I think the late viewer, who was a bit drunk and impetuous on Wednesday night, was crushed by her, but she greeted him after the show and started again. Faye is a musician and comedian, and the problem with her is that she gets that out of everyone else.
It’s a storytelling show at its heart, with Faye Treacy playing her trombone on a loop. The concept itself catches our eye, but the story behind it is most interesting. I wanted to put on this show to improve myself and break away from my club set and tell the story I wanted.
When my little sister asked me for career advice, I realized that I would spend much of my 20s making trombone comedies work as a show, and I tried to put a lot more together in the form of storytelling. As it turned out, her talent for achieving Grade 8 “s in three years opened the door to global social mobility in Croydon. When her headteacher told her she was stupid to learn to read music, it lit a fire in Faye’s stomach.
Faye Treacy, a British school contemporary of Jessie J and Adele, has a multi-faceted background in the performing arts and performs everywhere. She is a trombonist and uses it to rally the audience around her, to welcome her to the stage like a lion sleeping tonight. But she doesn’t distinguish herself in the way her classmates suffer from being accepted.
Given all this, it questions Faye’s directing and her simultaneous careers in music and comedy and what we can expect from the show this year. Faye storytelling in this show is her whole narrative: she has a loop pedal, she twists her trombone, and she stands above everything.
