Looking forward to my third night at the Brighton Fringe! It’s a beautiful day, like being in the French Riviera but with more sunburns and chicken shops.
Thanks to Broadway Baby and Fringe Guru for two great reviews for Thursday’s shows! If I ever encounter these people again I will buy them so many drinks.
Also I’ve been shortlisted for the Latest Awards for Best Female Performer and Best International Performer at the Brighton Fringe! If you’ve seen the show and liked it please do vote at the link below!

Halifax you salty sea dog! I’m having the best time here. Yesterday I ate five oysters, a loaf of bread, and two glasses of tomato juice for lunch and felt on top of the world. In the evening I played the Casino with an amazing line up of people I admire – and tonight I’ll be at the Rebecca Cohn Theatre. Catch it all on CBC next spring (if the world doesn’t end by then).
Here are a few pics of me looking super excited.

Toronto stock up your hotdog vendors, Tim Hortonses, and all-you-can-eat Sushi restaurants. I’m coming for you.
APRIL 21ST at 8pm and APRIL 22ND at 7:30 pm you can find me with my pal Sabrina Jalees at the Flying Beaver Pubaret on Parliament Street. We are rarely in the same city at the same time, so this is a cause for celebration. Also Sabrina’s birthday! Come on down. Get tickets in advance – urgently!
In other big news, I’m getting really excited about Edinburgh 2012 because the guys at http://www.comcomedy.com just posted this fantastic video of footage of last year’s Edinburgh! Check out at the end when a rabbit disrupts an outdoor gig and I absolutely lose my mind, as though I’ve just seen a Unicorn.

WELCOME TO THE NEW MAEMARTIN.CA !!!
It’s got everything that was on the old site but it looks 100 times better – finally I can see what I would look like crushing the city of Toronto by squatting on it. Thanks to Courtyard Creative for designing it!
I am so excited about my new website that for a minute I forgot to be caught in a feverish whirlpool of emotions in response to the impending re-release of TITANIC 3D. I’m literally beside myself with excitement about being able to touch Kate and Leo as they emerge from the screen towards me.
Check out the upcoming shows section of the website to come and hang out with me at a show somewhere – I’m mainly in London but will be back in Canada briefly for the HALIFAX COMEDY FESTIVAL at the end of April, as well as two shows at the Flying Beaver Pubaret.
Check out http://www.halifaxcomedyfest.ca/ for details!

I did it. I got Twitter. It has ruined and enhanced my life. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and checked it. Will this phase pass? Will it lose its luster? Right now it feels thrilling. I tweeted @LeonardoDiCaprio asking him to be a sperm donor for my children, but he hasn’t written back yet. Only a matter of time, I assume, unless I’ve been misled and Twitter is not actually about convincing celebrities to father your unborn children.
In other news, in light of the recent controversy surrounding Jann Arden and her dog on the via rail train in Oshawa, Canada, I thought that this clip was relevant. It was filmed long before the dog incident ever occurred (google the dog incident if you don’t know what I’m referring to), but seems timely. When I tweeted it at Jann Arden she didn’t find it funny and has blocked me on Twitter. I think I was being “Insensitive” (get it?) but I thought she’d get a kick out of it! Forgive me Jann Arden! Check it out below:
The Jann Arden Incident – Upstaged
Friends in London there are tons of gigs coming up including Edinburgh previews soon, and more great line ups at the monthly Candy Bar night (Zoe Lyons headlining this Thursday) and friends in Canada I’ll see you soon at the HALIFAX COMEDY FESTIVAL! April 25th – 28th. I’ll be there drinking so much Tim Hortons you won’t even believe it.

Hi pals – got a great review on Spoonfed for PLEB TALKS LIVE (featuring myself, Simon Munnery, Nish Kumar, Nick Sun and Kieran and the Three Joes). If you have a chance, check out PLEB’s future shows at secret locations in London. If you are anything like me, just being at a “secret location” will make you feel like a CIA operative.
You can read the full review here:
“…After two structured (if surreal) acts, Martin’s conversational style is refreshing and wickedly funny. She puts one foot up, awkwardly, on the table to appear more authoritative. She chats abouts life, displaying surprise at the ways of the world. Her anecdotes are shot through with the phrase ” holy shit!” spoken in soft Canadian tones. She’s gentle but intelligent, sweet yet sharp and it’s a winning combination. Every time a musing threatens to peter out, it’s spiked with a killer throwaway line and, after the night is over, it’s Mae Martin people are talking about. She’s the gem in an evening of outstanding comic talent.”
In other news: X Factor has taken over my life and dominates all of my weekends. I might even start gambling at Ladbrokes, betting on the winner. Would this be a positive life choice?
