Laura Smyth is making waves on the comedy scene, this working-class East Londoner won the Funny Women Awards in 2019 only 7 months after her first ever stand-up gig. Steve Bennett described her as ‘a real force-of-nature’ and he wasn’t wrong.

Laura made her comedy TV debut on JONATHAN ROSS’ COMEDY CLUB for ITV last autumn, since then she has appeared on YESTERDAY, TOMORROW AND THE DAY BEFORE for Comedy Cemtral UK and AS YET UNTITLED for Dave. Laura performed at Latitude festival this July and did her first hour work in progress show at Leicester Comedy Festival in February over zoom. 

A prolific writer, Laura is working on her first script commission with Sam Leifer and Caroline Leddy for the BBC. She's also just shot her first acting role in independent feature film COTTONTAIL.
