Biography

Fearless, provocative, and very funny, Ria Lina is a highly accomplished comedian, writer, actor, and one of the hardest working performers in the business. After a critically acclaimed stand out debut on Mock The Week, Ria is quickly becoming a household name. A hugely admired act on the UK comedy circuit, this multi-award-winning artist commands respect from the moment she walks onstage and delivers with natural ease, energy, and fierceness.

Ria is the only female Filipina comedian in British stand up and she also has a BSc in Experimental Pathology, an MSc in Forensic Science, and a PhD in Virology under her belt, so it’s not only Ria’s comedy that’s highly intelligent.

With her vast skillset and incredible intellect, Ria is an excellent addition to any event. She is an accomplished host and can adapt to any given brief. In addition, she is also passionate about being neurodivergent, and the increasingly visibility of neurodivergent talent.

Ria’s TV credits include Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Question Team, Steph's Packed Lunchand The Jeremy Vine Show.
