Myra DuBois is the nationally celebrated & acerbically witted ‘self-declared siren from South Yorkshire’.
A talented actress, singer and comedian, she quickly made a name for herself in some of London’s hottest Cabaret venues including The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Madame Jojo’s, The Hippodrome Casino and Cafe De Paris. Time Out London eventually declared her to be “acid tongued – funny to the bone”!
Nominated for four consecutive years at the London Cabaret Awards, Myra DuBois eventually actually walked away with the gong in 2013 before going on to host the awards in 2014 and 2015.
Clawing her way onto television, Myra has appeared on ITVs ‘Fool Britania’ with Dom Jolly and BBC1s The John Bishop Shop where she performed her signature number, ‘I Know Him So Well’. This caught the attention of Sir Tim Rice who went on to declare Myra’s rendition of the song to be “definitive”! Recently, Myra has found herself as a regular panellist on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side (Channel 5).
Her debut one-woman show ‘Self AdMyra’ (produced by So Comedy) played the London Wonderground, the Leicester Square Theatre and the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 before a debut UK tour in Spring 2017. Her follow up show DuBois Entendres hit the Charing Cross Theatre in 2017 before heading to the Southbank Festival & the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and is set to tour the UK in 2018.
Myra’s annual Christmas offering, ‘We Wish You A Myra Christmas’ played at the Charing Cross Theatre and The Clapham Grand in 2016 & 2017 respectively.
Myra DuBois is the comic creation of writer and comedian Gareth Joyner.
