Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Shelley Bridgman, a British stand-up comic, presenter, actress, and writer who started stand-up in 2004 under the stage name Shelley Cooper before reverted to her real name, the 2012 Silver Stand Up honoree, transgender activist, the author of Stand-up for Yourself: And Become the Hero or Shero You Were Born To Be (2014). Hello Shelley!
Now I connect with who I am so that the audience know I’m comfortable with myself but then I move on. So in a twenty minute routine I spend 30-60 seconds talking about being a woman who has changed gender.
Monika: Could you elaborate more on your most successful shows and performances?
Monika: Which aspects of your experience can be useful for other transwomen?
Monika: Could transgenderism be the new frontier for human rights?
Monika: Could you tell me about the importance of love in your life?
