Nominated for ‘Female Comedian of the Year‘ and ‘Show of the Year‘ at the 2017 Swedish Stand-Up Gala, Evelyn Mok is the best thing to come out of Sweden since… IKEA? A stand-up comedian and actor born in Sweden to a father from Hong Kong and a Chinese mother born and raised in India, Mok challenges pre-disposed stereotypes with an unapologetic style and sharp witted hilarity.
Shortly after moving to London, she was quickly selected for the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve and Just the Tonic’s Big Value Showcase also garnering finalist positions in the Chortle Student Comedy Awards and Leicester Square Theatre’s New Comedian of the Year Award. A seasoned live-act, she performs stand-up comedy across the UK and Europe, most recently supporting Josie Long and Paul Foot on their European tours.
On television you can catch up with Evelyn on the likes of Chris Ramsey’s Stand Up Central for Comedy Central alongside the best UK comics and she was recently a guest on Nick Helm’s Eat Your HeartOut for Channel Dave. A talented actor, Evelyn has starred opposite Rhys Darby in the C4 Comedy Blap ‘Furious Andrew‘, Andi Osho’s Twin Thing comedy short for Sky Arts, and BBC3 Comedy’s Big Field, where she played various characters in the luxurious setting of a cold, wet British field to very funny consequences! She has also guest starred in Sam Simmons’ Comedy Blap, Wallstud: Spincycle for Channel 4, Tim Renkow‘s Comedy Feed, A Brief History of Tim for BBC3.
