Awesome comedy event Award -winning acts

Monkey Business Comedy Club Proudly Presents Multi Award-winning Live at the Apollo & Mock the Week star performing her Edinburgh preview absolutely hilarious ELLIE TAYLOR Most recently you may have seen Ellie on Live at the Apollo or Mock the Week (twice), or starring in the Disney Channel’s worldwide hit series ‘The Lodge’. Previously, Ellie has got her hands dirty trying to rid the UK of fake tan for BBC3’s make-under show ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid?’. She’s also acted as team captain on ITV2’s panel show ‘Fake Reaction’, been ‘Poppy’ in Comedy Central’s ‘Brotherhood’ and occasionally popped up on Channel 4′s ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’. Or maybe you’ve just seen her in Pret. She’s in there a lot, especially on mushroom risotto day. But, she is a confident and utterly hilarious performer; a breath of fresh air on the comedy circuit. TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, The John Bishop Show, Drunk History, Celebrity Squares and more!) Ellie also returned to the Edinburgh Fringe with a brand new solo show ‘Infidelliety‘. Now, as a happily married woman, Ellie uses this show to explore that pesky bit of marriage known as monogamy. “Radiates natural charisma…blessed with great flair” – Guardian “Smart, self mocking, and telegenic. It’s hard to see what’s going to get in Taylor’s way” – Scotsman “Taylor excels at a brand of self-mocking stand-up feminism” – Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard and Beyond the Joke “Sparkling and energetic company…the potential to go on to really great things” – Three Weeks “Charismatic, personable and bright” – Chortle “Snappy, relatable and downright funny” – Broadway Baby “Frequently hilarious” – The Metro plus Multi Award-winning comedian/writer /actress highly entertaining/very funny ANNA MORRIS Anna Morris is an award winning comedian, writer and actress.
