Sally Phillips Biography

Sally Phillips has got one of those faces that just makes people laugh. Modestly, she thinks it’s because the corners of her mouth naturally turn up – her hoards of admirers reckon the razor-sharp wit is more of a factor.

Either way, Sally’s face is synonymous with the best of British comedy – Miranda, Smack the Pony, Alan Partridge and Bridget Jones – and she has been listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts on the scene.

Travelling the world as a child with her BA Exec dad, and eventually ‘not fitting in’ at an English boarding school, Sally finally found herself at Oxford, where she gained a First Class degree in Italian, but more pertinently, spent time nurturing her comedic talents and finding sanctuary on stage.

Sally Phillips has got one of those faces that just makes people laugh. Modestly, she thinks it’s because the corners of her mouth naturally turn up – her hoards of admirers reckon the razor-sharp wit is more of a factor.

Either way, Sally’s face is synonymous with the best of British comedy – Miranda, Smack the Pony, Alan Partridge and Bridget Jones – and she has been listed in The Observer as one of the 50 funniest acts on the scene.

Travelling the world as a child with her BA Exec dad, and eventually ‘not fitting in’ at an English boarding school, Sally finally found herself at Oxford, where she gained a First Class degree in Italian, but more pertinently, spent time nurturing her comedic talents and finding sanctuary on stage.

In Bridget Jones’ Diary she played Shazzer, the wine-guzzling sidekick, and as Miranda Hart’s best friend on the hit TV sitcom, she feared the ‘always the bridesmaid never the bride syndrome’ would blight her career, but could not have been more wrong.

Instantly recognisable as Tilly in Miranda, and as one of the four female writers and performers on Channel 4’s award-winning comedy sketch show, Smack the Pony, Sally won an Emmy Award for the Best Popular Arts Show in 1999 and 2000, and was nominated for Best Comedy Female Newcomer at the British Comedy Awards for her role on the show, and is a British household name.

Other TV credits include a guest star part in the E4 drama Skins; the role of Clare Winchester in the BBC 2 sci-fi comedy Hyperdrive , and Tash Vine in the BBC 1 comedy, Jam and Jerusalem, written by Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French. Sally also starred in the comedy drama series Rescue Me on BBC One. For playing Claire in Radio 4′s sitcom, Clare in the Community, since 2004, Sally was awarded a host of awards, including  the Bronze Comedy Award at the 2005 Sony Radio Awards.

A talented wordsmith, Sally wrote the film, The Decoy Bride, which was filmed on location in Scotland and was released in the UK in 2012. Starring David Tennant, Kelly MacDonald and Alice Eve, Sally also makes appearance in the film herself.
