Australian comic & actor, Felicity Ward has only been in in the UK a short while, but she is already taking the British Comedy scene by storm. Having headlined ‘Live From the BBC’ for BBC Two and appearing on ‘Mock The Week’ (BBC Two), ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’ (BBC3), ‘Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled’ (Dave), BBC3’s ‘Red Button Comedy’, ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1) as well as regularly contributing to ‘Make You Laugh Out Loud’ (Ch 5) and ‘Sam Delaney’s News Thing’ (Russia Today). Plus, more exciting appearances in Josh Widdicombe’s BBC3 sitcom Josh, Channel 4’s Digital Hijack and a quick dash back across the Atlantic to star in ‘Ronny Chieng: International Student’, sitcom for ABC which is now airing on BBC Three. If that’s not enough, the big screen beckons too! She had a co-starring role in Australian comedy feature film ‘Any Questions For Ben?’ (made by Working Dog Productions who also made Australian Cult Classic ‘The Castle’) and appeared in the box office smash-hit ‘The Inbetweeners Movie 2’.
In 2015 Felicity stormed the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with solo show, ‘What if There is No Toilet?’, earning the 3rd highest reviewed show of the festival and went on to win the award for Best International Show at the New Zealand Comedy Festival the following year. Back again on UK soil, Felicity took her hotly anticipated follow-up solo show, ‘50% More Likely to Die’, to the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and followed up with her first ever UK tour last autumn. Currently, Felicity has a number of exciting projects in development, both on and off screen.
