Daphna Baram, AKA MissD, started performing as a comedian in 2009 following a frightening turn of events which involved two weddings, one heart attack and Chris Morris. She's been at it ever since. The Israel-born human rights lawyer gone journalist has been gigging relentlessly in the UK, Ireland and Scotland and has taken shows to Brighton, Edinburgh and Leicester Fringe festivals. She supported Ava Vidal in her 2012 tour, and ran MissD's Silver Hammer comedy club in Hammersmith.
