Angela Barnes

Angela Barnes

After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes decided to realise a long held ambition and give comedy a go. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since 2011, Angela and her witty world view have been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Russell Kane’s Whistle Stop Tour (BBC Radio 2), and BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show. Angela is a terrific British comedian and winner of the BBC New Comedy Award in 2011. She was also a finalist for the Latitude New Act Of The Year and the Up The Creek One To Watch both in 2011.

Angela mixes warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes. She is very confident in the way she attacks her one liners and punch lines, her easy going manner really draws audiences in. Angela is great fun and definitely one to watch.

  • Hi Sally, 

    Angela was terrific! I need to catch up with the client properly but the feedback has been wonderful. Angela was amazing to work with – so easy and took all changes to script and schedule in her stride. She was great with the clients too and stayed for a drink with them post show. 

    I would highly recommend her to all my other clients. So thank you for recommending her.
