Take Five With… Bev Killick

Bev’s life has become all about boobs since she landed a role in the much-aired Berlei Ad for the Uplifting Tour of Australia and was asked to perform as a Bosum Buddy of Busting Out! Of course she accepted the Busting Out! offer and has now toured for the last 4 years in Australia, New Zealand and the UK and Edinburgh Festival. Bev is also doing solo stand up shows around the nation.
