Fern Brady

Former comedy reviewer Fern Brady first tried stand up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she 'faked it' as a comedian. She enjoyed it so much that one year on, she embarked on a career as a stand-up, making the final of So You Think You're Funny at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2011, where she was placed joint third.

In 2021, her stand-up special Power & Chaos aired on BBC One and she also presented the Dave travelogue British as Folk alongside fellow comedians Ivo Graham and Darren Harriott.

She was a contestant in the 14th season of Taskmaster in 2022 and is author of the bestseller Strong Female Character, which in 2024 won the first Nero book award for non-fiction.
