An acclaimed stand-up and writer, Holly Walsh is an established talent in both fields. Holly is currently working on scripts for both the BBC and Channel 4 and will host her own BBC Radio series Unwritten Rules, commissioned for 2015. Her stand-up credentials were established with her 2008 Best Newcomer win at the Chortle Awards and confirmed with an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination three years later for her debut Fringe show, Hollycopter, the show also enjoyed a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre in 2012. Holly has since returned from another successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 where her sold-out show Never Had It was warmly received by audiences and critics alike; most notably The Observer who lauded Holly’s ‘gift for original lines and images that make the show a joy.’
Holly has featured on many of the top TV comedy shows including, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You? and Mock The Week, as well as hosting the Channel 4 series, TNT, alongside Jack Whitehall. On top of this she is often heard on radio and has appeared on shows such as Just a Minute, The Unbelievable Truth, The Now Show, The News Quiz and Charlie Brooker’s So Wrong It’s Right for Radio 4. As well as these guest appearances, Holly is much in demand as writer for TV and Radio and has written widely for both.
On top of her TV and radio commitments, Holly’s live work remains a key element of her career and sees her perform at the best comedy clubs in the country. She was one of the founders of Popcorn Comedy and regularly comperes the Happy Mondays comedy night in London.
