Briefly a CBBC presenter, Holly has gone on to appear on panel shows from 8 Out Of 10 Cats to Just A Minute, write for TV at home and in the US, and become a live hit. The Chortle Best Newcomer earned three Edinburgh award nominations, and her recent show was acclaimed for its ‘original lines and images that make the show a joy.’
Award-winning comedian Holly Walsh has gone from occasional CBBC presenter to acclaimed live performer and panel show regular.
After studying art history, Holly began her career with a comedy writing course while she was working as a gallery assistant. After writing for Radio 4 and picking up a host of new comedy award nominations, she was soon appearing on Mock the Week, Would I Lie to You?, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and Never Mind The Buzzcock. She’s also a regular on Radio 4’s News Quiz, The Now Show, and Just A Minute, has appeared on Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe, and continues to write for both TV (at home and in the US) and radio. Holly’s also worked with such comedy greats as Frank Skinner, Matt Lucas and Sharon Horgan.
Her relaxed, conversational style, smart observations and slightly nerdy self-deprecation has won over live audiences at clubs and festivals world-wide.
