Olga Thompson is better known as Big Fat Greek Mother. Her insta bio is: Character skits, wigs and kebabs. I had the joy of finding her in lockdown - Olga's impressions, maverick characters and red lippy smile are a ray of sunshine from your phone. My guess about Olga's courage to perform wasn't quite right. Comedy and characters have been in her imagination and come naturally since being a kid. Sometimes it takes more guts to fully be yourself. Olga opens up to me about some of the fears she's conquered, why dress up should be celebrated and cracks out a range of class accents. We chat about why it's important for women to embrace stupidity and not waiting for fear to evaporate, before getting your own type of bonkers out there.
If you've enjoyed any of these episodes or think a conversation on courage would help a friend, I'd appreciate a review. It takes less than 30 seconds and can really boost the chances of Call On Courage being discovered by others. Thanks so much 🙏🏻
