Able to swiftly turn around topical sketches and gags, writing solo, or collaboratively with on-screen talent, Laura is one of the UK’s most popular and in-demand young comedy entertainment writers.

On television she has recently finished a stint on MOCK THE WEEK as well as various other comedy telvision shows such as NEWSJACK for BBC and PRIDE OF BRITAIN for ITV. She's currently wriiting material for the new series of FAMALAM. 

A graduate of the NFTS ‘Writing and Producing Comedy’ diploma, Laura won the BBC Writers Bursary and spent 2018 in-house creating topical comedy across various shows on BBC Radio 4 including Dead Ringers, Newsjack and News Quiz.

She has a wealth of experience in narrative work, and her original format AMANDA’S GETTING MARRIED was made into a series for BBC Comedy online.
