In 2017, she performed her debut solo show 'Butt Donut' at the Melbourne Fringe and completely sold out her season. She toured the show in Perth and Adelaide before performing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

As an actor, Annie has performed with the Australian Shakespeare Company, the Victorian Youth Theatre and was a VCE Drama Top Class Performer.
