Angela Barnes is an award winning British comedian from London, that uses her own everyday life as inspiration for her shows with hilarious results. At the start of her career, Barnes ran comedy nights in Brighton and took part in a 12 week workshop in standup, which she used as experience to get her started in the comedy industry. She is a regular tourer, performing alongside and supporting other well-known comedians with their shows, as well as her own solo performances in major theatres all over the country. Angela is currently touring across the UK with her new show, Rose-Tinted.
Angela has also appeared on various TV and radio programmes such as BBC Two’s Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week, BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News, and written for and appeared on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz. She has also developed her own series with BBC Radio Comedy, and performed at the Latitude Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and BBC Radio 2’s Live in Hyde Park. In 2011, Angela was nominated and won BBC Radio 2’s New Comedy Award. In 2018, Angela led the setting up of The Home Safe Collective, a free cab service for comedians at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to ensure vulnerable members get home safe, after the murder of Australian comedian Eurydice Dixon. The campaign won the Panel Prize Award at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards in 2018.
