This week Paulus and Emily are joined by Onyx Fatale AKA Sikisa ‘Twix’ Barnes. ‘Twix’ performs both stand-up comedy and burlesque, sometimes both within the one act. She also holds down a full-time career. We discuss balancing work with performing and the desire to find a place where you belong and a platform within the arts to be seen and heard.
