Born in Bathgate, West Lothian, Fern Brady graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Arabic and Islamic History at the University of Edinburgh, after which she trained to become a journalist. However, when an intern at Fest Magazine, a free magazine covering the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, she was tasked with the job of writing an article about a comedy critic trying stand-up for the first time. This was the impetus she needed to realise her true dream of becoming a live comedian herself.
After placing joint-third in So You Think You're Funny? at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe, has went on to appear regularly on topical panel shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle's New World Order, and The Russell Howard Hour.
