Bec Hill

Comedian. Presenter. Dork.

SHORT BIO for grown-ups:

Bec Hill is an Australian-born, UK-based comedian, writer, actor and presenter. She is best known for her viral flipchart videos and ridiculous social media adventures. When she's not performing stand-up around the world to both adults and kids, she is either appearing on/writing for telly, chatting on various podcasts, or winning awards. She's also been a time-traveller, the voice of several characters in Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem, and most recently became a Tooth Fairy.

short bio for kids:

Bec Hill is an Australian-born, UK-based comedian, writer and presenter. She won the "Best Kids Show" Award at this year's Leicester Comedy Festival, writes for several Cbeebies, CBBC and SkyKIDS shows, and has appeared on every season of The Dog Ate My Homework. When she's not entertaining adults in late-night comedy clubs, she's touring with Comedy Club 4 Kids where she gets to perform in exciting places like Hong Kong, Ireland and... Southport. She likes superheroes, playing with art supplies and thinks bums are funny. (Because they are.)

longer general bio:

Australian-born and now London-based, Bec has gained a cult following in Australia, the UK and Ireland thanks to her award-winning solo shows, Twitter presence and popular YouTube videos. She has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy style that she calls “paper-puppetry”.

Bec can be found as a guest on the 2nd series of "Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit", a judge on "Sam & Mark's Big Friday Wind-Up", and the voice of several characters in "Mass Effect: Andromeda". She has also appeared in every series of CBBC's “The Dog Ate My Homework”, and starred in the Sundance UK Grand Jury Prize winning short film "Russian Roulette".

Her one-liners regularly feature in "best joke" lists by "reputable" sources like The Telegraph, Dave, The Guardian, The Independent, Daily Record and Buzzfeed, which isn't surprising, as she is the creator of the UK’s only pun-based comedy night, Pun Run. She has also written for The Amazing World of Gumball, Bluestone 42, Dilemma, The Now Show and her first short animation directorial debut, "Scoring Pointes" aired with Disney in 2016.

She was also one half of the award-winning, critically-acclaimed family comedy double-act, Bec & Tom.
