Myra DuBois is the multi-award winning and nationally celebrated & acerbically witted ‘self-declared siren from South Yorkshire’. In 2019 Myra joined the cast of the feature film Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, due for general release in 2020.
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”! In 2019 she made her Latitude Festival debut.
Clawing her way onto television, Myra has appeared on Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Bit on The Side 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 most recent solo show, Dead Funny, was a huge hit in Edinburgh, sold out Underbelly Southbank and will play The Sydney Opera House as part of their Mardi Gras celebrations in 2020. Her previous show We Wish You A Myra Christmas followed a sellout Edinburgh Fringe run with sold out shows at The Clapham Grand in 2016/17 a Soho Theatre run in 2019.
Myra DuBois is the comic creation of writer and comedian Gareth Joyner.
