Emma began performing at Oxford University, where she was taking a degree in English. It was there that she met up with Stewart Lee and Richard Herring, and together with others they formed a comedy group, hilariously named The Seven Raymonds (hilarious because there were only six of them, and none of them were called Raymond!) She went on to become President of The Oxford Revue.

After graduating, Emma travelled for a year in America, and while she was there she wrote adverts for soap. On her return she began training as a solicitor and for three years practised in London. In 1995 she saw sense and left the legal profession, and started her performing career. And jolly lucky for us that she did.
