Grand Duchess XXXI

Madame Self

Madame Self discovered her name during her divorce, when she went around saying, “I guess I’ll have to do it all by my damn self,” and she did.

While raising three kids and working full time as a social worker, she had that name slapped on a jersey and skated on a local recreational roller derby league until she damaged her foot and had to hang up her skates. Missing the lights, adrenaline and cute outfits, Madame went in search of something to fill that roller derby shaped hole in her life and found stand up comedy.

Joining this Royal Family of the Imperial Court of Minnesota gives Madame the opportunity to merge her passion for LGBTQIA+ activism with her love of performing stand up comedy.
