Nina Conti is a highly popular stand-up ventriloquist, who is often aided and abetted by a cheeky, foul-mouthed sidekick monkey nicknamed 'Monk'.
Nina always scores a big hit with Prime Performers' clients, as our feedback ably and amply demonstrates, with comments such as "Nina was exceptional. We were actually quite shocked, but that made it all the more hilarious!" and "Nina Conti was amazing and totally made the evening. In all the thank you letters that I have received everyone but everyone has said how fantastic she was."
Nina began her rise to fame as a stand-up ventriloquist in early 2002, winning the BBC New Comedy Award in the same year. Since then, she has gone from strength to strength, winning numerous awards for her writing, acting and ventriloquism.
Today, Nina is a regular headliner at various comedy venues and events throughout London and further afield, such as The Comedy Store, the Soho Theatre and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She has also taken her show overseas, appearing at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and also the Montreal Comedy Festival.
Nina has appeared in a number of TV shows, including Comic Relief and The Rob Brydon Show. In addition, she has a wide range of experience in radio, having featured in four series of the Sony Award-winning Claire in the Community.

PRIVATE BIRTHDAY PARTY, SEPTEMBER 2012
Excellent performance from a very talented lady (and monkey and granny!). She managed to keep a crowd of 860 (mainly male) guests quiet and entertained for almost 25minutes!! Result - well done! We would recommend her act to anyone. She's brilliant.
The Construction Manager of the Year Awards 2011
I wanted to write to thank you for helping me with booking Nina for our event last week, and to ask you to pass on our thanks to Nina for coming to do it. I had fairly high expectations, having been a fan of Nina for a long time, but I confess my expectations were surpassed. She was just brilliant. Not only was she just genius funny on stage, but she was also really lovely to work with and a huge pleasure to have around. The feedback has been universally and unashamedly positive, and she has helped to deliver what I think was our most successful meeting ever. Please do let Nina know how well received she was, and thank her again for taking the time.

Nina was exceptional. We were actually quite shocked, but that made it all the more hilarious!"
Nina Conti was amazing and totally made the evening. In all the thank you letters that I have received everyone but everyone has said how fantastic she was. In fact a couple of people have rung up for details so hopefully she will get more dates for her diary...She was also so patient, as she didn't get to go on until [late] but she did not complain once. Please thank her a million times over for making our evening such a huge success. We all absolutely loved her and hope that one day she will come back and do something else for us.”

PURPLE CACTUS PRESS
She's highly-polished, exuberant and playful, with an act that's fluid, technically faultless and utterly engaging.
Gut-bustingly funny and the crowd roared their approval throughout ... trust me, it is yet another ingenious, adventurous conceit that has had a real comic intelligence applied to it. This is a really well thought out, clever, witty and downright brilliant show. Wonderful entertainment performed by an artist at the peak of her powers.
