Burton was interviewed on Tuesday by the renowned comedy blogger and man behind the Malcolm Hardee Awards for comic originality John Fleming. She opened up to him about her mental health past more than she ever has done publicly before. Click on if you’re brave enough…
Of Burton’s new show ‘When I Grow Up‘ John said: “A happy, life-enhancing show….jolly and enthusiastic and life-celebrating… People will go out with a smile on their face…I did.”
Thank you, John. From the bottom of Burton’s strange little heart and from every corner of her wandering mind, thank you.

Juliette’s first work-in-progress performance of When I Grow Up went really well last night! The Stowmarket audience were lovely. Here’s what they said on Twitter and Facebook:
Michelle G: Excellent first preview last night of Juliette Burton: Writer Performer‘s new show, When I Grow Up (at Edinburgh Fringe). It’s funny, moving, thought-provoking and charming. Definitely recommend – shows in Cambridge too: When I Grow Up (CAMBRIDGE PREVIEWS)
Aaron W: Thanks to @JulietteBurton‘s lovely show last night, I realised I currently have a job, but am working towards having a vocation … you actually inspired me quite a bit! (In terms of pushing for vocation rather than job) … @JulietteBurton put on an excellent show, really good fun and a well told story. What a marvellous evening!
Andy F: Thanks for sharing your story with such courage – if I ever grow up, I want to be as authentic and lovely as you!
Xtreme Productions: Had a great night watching @doug_segal and @JulietteBurton previewing their new shows, both of which were wonderful. Highly recommend!
Laura: Accosted you as you were getting in your car- sorry! Absolutely loved the show!
Doug Segal: Watching the run-through of Juliette Burton’s show. It’s utterly charming.
Come accost Juliette at her next work in progress performances at the Brighton Fringe this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday!
The lovely website Funny Women have written a great little article recommending When I Grow Up very highly!
They describe Juliette’s journey to realise her varied childhood ambitions in When I Grow Up, sweetly concluding “Luckily for audiences everywhere, she ended up as a writer, actress and one half of ace comedy duo Mace and Burton!”
They say “If you’ve ever fancied a trip down memory lane, this is definitely not one to be missed!”
So, don’t miss it! Join Juliette for When I Grow Up in Stowmarket, Brighton, Glasgow, Cambridge and Edinburgh!
