Guildford's own Holly Walsh has many a string to her bow, being a finalist in 2006's So You Think You're Funny? and Funny Women contests, as well as presenting for CBBC. A brilliant purveyor of one-line gags and witty puns.
'She's gifted with snappy wit and crackling talent' (The Guardian)
'She peppers her set with callbacks and clever asides and has easy charm' (The Independent)
'Holly Walsh really impressed... excellent sets and endeared herself through
some assured banter with crowds who really took to her' (British Comedy Guide)
'A talent for smart comic writing and the ability to keep an audience rapt' (The Observer)
'Her steady stream of witty and astute cultural observations belie her dorkiness from the first' (Chortle).
Holly Walsh tour dates
British comedienne and one of the founding members of the touring improv team behind Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, Pippa first emerged on the comedy scene with an incredibly successful Edinburgh Fringe Festival where her debut solo
show, Pippa Evans And Other Lonely People, was nominated for the if.comedy Best Newcomer Award 2008.
In 2009 she unleashed her alter-ego, psychotic American country and western singer Loretta Maine.
'Delightfully deranged' (Metro)
'Truly impressive one-liners...inspired, quotable pearls of wisdom. Fine comic writing underpins her flawless, perfectly timed performance. She’s a relative newcomer, but has certainly got the talent for a sustained and stellar career in comedy' (Chortle).
'... probably one of the most talented performers at Edinburgh this year' (The Independent, 2009).
