Hannah Platt is a highly original stand-up comedian with a wonderfully misanthropic outlook establishing her as a unique comic voice.
She made it to the finals of BBC New Comedian of the Year Award elected from over 2,000 applicants. Having been described as ‘A voice of a new generation’ by The Skinny and ‘a voice with something to say’ by Chortle, never shying away from sensitive topics with brutal honesty and quick wit she’s an act that delivers the laughs by the bucketload. Hannah has also been commissioned to make a Laugh Lesson for BBC3 and written on the Now Show and The News Quiz for BBC Radio 4. She prides herself on her ability to take difficult and complex topics and turn them into sharp, refreshing gags.
