Under the name Hercusleaze, Fitzgerald performs locally in Montreal as a drag king. In 2018, in a collaboration with photographer, Alex Tran, Fitzgerald began a photographic series using drag to reinterpret figures from Greek mythology.
Fitzgerald performs autobiographical stories at events including Confabulation, Carte Blanche’s This Really Happened, Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids, and Letters from Montreal, the Maisonneuve Magazine lecture series.
Fitzgerald improvises in Montreal and abroad in the cross-country duo We're So Strong (with Dave Morris) and in the duo Mansion (with Vance Gillis.) She was also one quarter of the touring troupe Quest of the Dragon King. She specializes in theatrical and character-driven long-form narrative improv. Fitzgerald is formerly an instructor of Montreal Improv Theatre.
