After a few years of soul searching and finding her niche, she’s back ! Ready to show the world the inner workings of her comedic mind and nothing is off limits! She dishes on her experiences as a stripper, her view on feminism, bi sexuality and everything in-between.
Her comeback saw her make it through to the Semi-Finals of the 2016 Raw Quest, and it’s only going to get better and more outrageous from here.

Music is big part of Brooke’s Maori culture, and she has performed in all types of school performances from Choirs and StageFest’s to Kapahaka groups/Polyfest.
Her rendition of Waves (Pictured) was part of her ‘talent’ section for the Miss Ink comp.
She’s cameoed in various NZ Music Video’s and will feature vocally in a couple of local artists tracks later on in the year.
There will also be some original content being released from her newly formed kiwi girl band, that will have a punk rock/soul blend to it.
More than just her looks – Brooke has a lot of opinions, and she’s not afraid to voice them! As far as she’s concerned, constructive honesty is exactly what the world is missing and she’s dishing it out in spades !
It’s not just the rantings of a strong Kiwi women though. There’s a bigger picture. She feels like there aren’t enough voices targeting younger women to empower themselves without shaming others and she’s determined to change that a become a positive force behind the message of body positivity, female empowerment and good ole fashioned lady love
