Holly Walsh Biography

Holly Walsh is a comedy performer and writer, known best for her work on both TV and radio. Her lateral-thinking gags and offbeat stage presence combine to form a unique and intensely funny act.

In 2010, Holly smashed her arm during the annual Worthing International Birdman festival, an experience which formed the basis for her Fringe debut, Hollycopter, for which she was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

Using her razor-sharp wit and playful persona, Holly has won handfuls of awards. As a finalist in the annual stand-up comedy competitions, Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, and So You Think You're Funny?, in 2006, Holly’s name was becoming familiar on the comedy scene, leading to a win at the Chortle Awards for Best Newcomer in 2008.

A runner-up in the 2006 Amused Moose Laugh Off at the Edinburgh Fringe, she appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2007 and again in 2008. Holly then co-hosted the 2009 Amused Moose Laugh Off with Jack Whitehall, and performed at the Leicester Comedy Festival Tour in 2009.

It was during her time working in small, contemporary art galleries in East London, and attending comedy writing evening classes, that Holly’s writing was noticed. Until now just a hobby, or at best a pipe dream, Holly’s talent was picked up by Jo Caulfield for her radio show, It's That Jo Caulfield Again, and her material was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2006.

Now immersed in comedy full time, Holly’s name began making the rounds, impressing major names, including Frank Skinner, who asked her to work on a pilot TV project, Frank Skinner's Skateboarding Dog. She continued to write for various Channel 4 and BBC TV and radio shows, including The Charlotte Church Show for Channel 4; Laurence & Gus-Hearts & Minds, The Wall, That Mitchell and Webb Sound and The News Quiz.

Other TV appearances have included featuring as a guest panellist on BBC 1's Would I Lie To You, and on Channel 4's You Have Been Watching. She has also featured on 8 Out of 10 Cats, and BBC 2's Mock The Week, and as a guest on Celebrity Big Brother's Big Mouth, and BBC Northern Ireland’s The Blame Game.

In 2011 she was nominated for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award, Best Newcomer Nominee award.

Holly is currently working on scripts for both the BBC and Channel 4 and will host her own BBC Radio series, Unwritten Rules in 2015.
