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 Have I Got News For You, and is currently writing material for stand-up Joe Lycett on a new entertainment show for Channel 4.  Other TV credits include Mock The Week, The Nightly Show and Tracey Breaks The News (starring Tracey Ullman). 

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.
