With only a little over three years of fun under her belt, native Hullensian Amy Gledhill has collated the kind of awards portfolio that would shame a seasoned pro. In her act, she deftly balances the intelligent with the daft – she satirises misogynist hecklers by, er, honking her tits – and she’s been slaying ’em all over the country, finally making the wise decision to uproot from Pontefract and move to Manchester.
Not just a solid standup, Gledhill has also been turning her Midas touch to sketch as one half of Footstool with Nicola Redman, and is one of the minds behind The Castle Hotel’s alternative new material night, Château Le Bomb.
Amy is also one half of The Delightful Sausage, a critically lauded comedy double act and writing partnership. In just 18 months they have managed two Edinburgh Festival shows, a run at The Soho Theatre and were picked as one of the top things to see by The Guardian.
