Imagine growing up the daughter of frickin' Comedy Royalty, being shuttled around the world as a very tall, geeky, British-accented adolescent, living a somewhat privileged life riding horses competitively, becoming a bit of a party girl, doing some modeling and then deciding to break into stand-up comedy. What the what...?

Not to mention she's been targeted by a short men advocacy group; I'm. Not. Kidding. Check out this fascinating conversation with a young, female stand-up on the rise - and yes, as a major-league Pythonite myself there is some good inside info on that world to satisfy the comedy geek in all of us... -LM Follow Camilla on Twitter and get more info and see where she's performing at
