Liz is an actress, writer and improviser. She plays series regular Andy Church in Channel 5 comedy series BORDERLINE. The show is a semi-improvised mockumentary following a team of inept UK border officials. The second series is due for release in 2017. 

“Liz Kingsman is the subtle all-seeing Everyperson, channelling Tim from The Office, and definitely one to watch.” The Guardian

Liz appeared as the series regular Ruby Hughes in Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin's satirical sitcom BALLOT MONKEYS on Channel 4, as well as follow up series POWER MONKEYS.

Liz is currently developing projects for Channel 4 and ITV with critically acclaimed sketch comedy group MASSIVE DAD. They have featured on BBC Radio 4’s SKETCHORAMA and BBC Radio 4’s FRESH FROM THE FRINGE and ITV topical sketch show @ELEVENISH.

The group were described as ‘The Female Millennials Changing Comedy’ in The Guardian, and their live comedy shows have had sell-out audiences and brilliant reviews:

'Performed with flair, attention to detail and an irresistible sense of fun - there's life in the trad sketch show yet' - 4 stars **** Brian Logan, Guardian

'Tight, energetic sketches where not a moment is wasted...boundless, relaxed energy.'  - 4 stars **** The List

'Tremendously choreographed and inventive...tightly written and exceptionally executed stuff.' - 4 stars **** Fest Mag

'This comedy trio are sketch-comedy geniuses.' - Glamour Magazine

Liz has trained in long-form comedy improvisation with Monkey Toast and The Free Association, and performs regularly with THE PETTING ZOO (“improv supergroup” Time Out) and THE FREE ASSOCIATION HOUSE TEAM SWEET FA.
