Fern Brady is a Scottish comedian and writer. A regular on comedy panel shows such as The News Quiz and The Now Show, her 2017 stand-up show, Suffer, Fools!, was filmed live for the BBC.

Biography

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.

Her Fringe stand-up shows include People Are Idiots (2015), Male Comedienne (2016), and Suffer, Fools! (2017), the last of which was filmed for Live From The BBC in 2019.

Known for a brutal, cutting turn of phrase that rips through the noise, she has appeared on many radio programmes such as The Now Show and News Quiz.
