‘One to Watch’ – Funny Women
Writer for The New Comedy Show on BBC Radio Norfolk & Suffolk
Amused Moose & Funny Women Comedy Awards Semi-Finalist
Ciara is a comedian, writer and actor who hates writing about herself in third-person.
I have been a writer since my late teens, which has progressed from being senior editor at my university’s newspaper, to writing band reviews and profiles for local magazines, managing a magazine in Russian (ideal for the editorial equivalent of a day-long nosebleed) and eventually working as a writer and journalist full-time.
I have written and performed comedy sketches for the BBC’s New Comedy Show on BBC Radio since 2015. My Joanna Lumley and Boudica sketches were particular popular for my ability to mock celebrity voices.
I am a stand-up comic, too, and during 2019 I underwent the punishing ordeal of undertaking national comedy competitions. I made it to the semi-finals of the Amused Moose Comedy Awards, whose alumni include Sarah Millican, Katherine Ryan and Greg Davies.
