Comedy songwriter Tamar was born to be a rock star. Unfortunately she was also born in Surrey. Riding off the buzz of a bit part on The Bill, this minstrel-sized songstress is ready for her next big break. Join Tamar on a musical detour everywhere from cyber stalking in the library to headlining at the local village hall. Her unique brand of storytelling and irresistibly witty lyrics are 'incongruously naughty and brilliantly conceived' (FunnyWomen.co.uk). Tamar pulls the 'sublimely funny from the ridiculously mundane' (FringeReview.co.uk). 'I predict a great future' (Michael Palin). www.tamarbroadbent.co.uk

- The List: Fringe comedy debut: Tamar Broadbent
Full press release
Andy Barnes and Emma Pritchard are proud to present the Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut of comedian and songwriter, Tamar Broadbent.
Tamar was born to be a rockstar.
Unfortunately, she was also born in Surrey.
Riding off the buzz of a bit part on The Bill, this minstrel-sized songstress is ready for her next big break. So join her on a musical detour everywhere from cyber-stalking in the library to headlining at the local village hall. Her unique brand of storytelling and irresistibly witty lyrics have been described as incongruously naughty and brilliantly conceived.
Tamar studied English at Bristol University and trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama. She has been performing her own original songs since 2004 and started gigging regularly on the comedy circuit in November following critical acclaim at the Funny Women Night (Komedia, Brighton).
Recent gigs include An Evening with Tamar Broadbent and Sooz Kempner (The Pheasantry) and The List and Other Musical Stories by Tamar Broadbent (Landor Theatre). Writing credits include Pierced (Winston Theatre, Bristol) and The List (Landor Theatre). '17 Drafts' from Pierced is currently in the final of the Stiles & Drewe Best New Song Award at the Garrick Theatre.
Television credits include Zoe in Lee Nelson's Well Funny People, The Bill and Doctors, and her theatre credits in training include Dot in Sondheim's Sunday in the Park with George (2012), Mimi in Rent (2011), and Woman 1 in Songs For a New World (2012).
