Some people have got 'it'. Holly most definitely does not. The only time anyone has ever said 'still got it!' to her, they were talking about a chest infection. In her new show, Holly asks why some people have nailed life, whilst she seems to have mislaid the instructions?
In the three years since her last Edinburgh Fringe outing, Holly has appeared on Mock The Week (BBC2), 8 Out of 10 Cats (C4), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC2), and Would I Lie To You? (BBC1). Alongside her performing credits, Holly has established herself as a leading comedy writer, co-creating the BBC3 series Dead Boss with Sharon Horgan. The US pilot of Dead Boss, starring Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), was made earlier this year for Fox. Previously, Holly has co-written two pilots for ABC - Bad Mom and Bad Management, as well writing for Bafta nominated Cardinal Burns (C4), Psychobitches (Sky) and Crackanory (Dave).
Holly started doing stand up in 2006, and was named 'Chortle Best Newcomer' in 2008. Her debut hour Hollycopter, was nominated for the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Best Newcomer Award in 2011'. As well television, Holly has appeared on a host of BBC Radio 4 shows including The Unbelievable Truth, Charlie Brooker's So Wrong It's Right, Just A Minute, The News Quiz and The Now Show. She will also be chairing her own Radio 4 show Best Behaviour in the New Year.
