LEICESTER MERCURY COMEDY AWARD WINNER 2021
“A bolshier Mrs Merton she’s not one to suffer fools lightly so watch out for a razor-sharp wit used at will.” The Skinny
Nina Gilligan sometimes outrageous, always hilarious with a charming, loveable persona which belies an acerbic wit.
2021 saw her crowned as the WINNER of the prestigious Leicester Mercury Award after also Winning Liverpool Hot Water and being a finalist in English Comedian of The Year in previous year’s.
Recent work includes a sell-out show ‘Late Developer’ at Leicester Comedy Festival which also had a packed room at Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
Recent Tour Support includes Jason Manford, Clinton Baptiste and Rachel Fairburn.
Described as ‘A Gem of the Circuit’ and with an ability to ‘Transcend age barriers effortlessly’ she continues to rise through the comedy ranks.
“A hidden gem of the Circuit” Kiri Pritchard McLean
Fresh and unique, it’s a pleasure to spend time in Harriet’s company as she weaves her surreal and hilarious tales. An imitable raconteur, it’s easy to see how this new act is making a big noise. Harriet already has heads turning with her baffling tales of a misspent youth, and bewildering personal tales that are so ridiculous, they must be true. Establishing her own style of material and delivery after such a short time, means Harriet’s stock can only continue to rise. A unique comic voice, Dyer charms any room with matchless material, an offbeat stage presence and a truly whirlwind fizz of energy.
Recently crowned the BBC New Comedian of the Year 2022.
