In 2020, Natasia filmed a regular role opposite Steve Coogan in the hit BBC series, This Time with Alan Patridge.

Natasia and comedy partner, Ellie White, recently filmed their sketch series, ELLIE & NATASIA, for the BBC, which they made with CPL and Harry Hill. The series followed a pilot, which was released in June 2019 to critical acclaim:

“This fearless new sketch show from comedians Ellie White and Natasia Demetriou is French and Saunders for the Fleabag generation.” The Sun

“Inventive, silly sketch show, featuring mummy bloggers, eastern European nail technicians and one sketch so sinister it puts David Lynch to shame.” The Guardian

“Their creations are fuelled by the fluent silliness of natural comic performers.” Radio Times

 

Demetriou also co-wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed BBC3 Comedy Feed People Time. The New Statesman recalled, “It’s rare to see something at the pilot stage that is so fully-formed and so confident. Also – no small matter, this, for a comedy – it is hilarious.” The Guardian dubbed the performance "the most startlingly good sketch group to have come out of this island since Absolutely." Her 2014 debut solo Edinburgh show, You'll Never Have All of Me, won the Skinny Debutant Award.

 

As a writer, Natasia has various projects in development with internationally renowned production companies.
