HATTY ASHDOWN
Representing Agent: Debi Allen
Roles: Writer, Actor, Comedian, Presenter
BIOGRAPHY:
Hatty Ashdown is a stand up, presenter, MC, writer,
actor...and slipper wearer.

Writing
Hatty has written the new sitcom GIVE OUT GIRLS
which will air on Sky Living in 2014. The show is based
around a group of promotional girls, who hand out products
in the street. With Hatty's hilarious first-hand experiences
informing the scripts, the show's authenticity shines through.
Hatty has written the show with Anthony McMurray; it is
produced by Big Talk Productions & Popper Pictures for Sky
Living.

Stand Up
Hatty subverts the normal stale concept of stand up and
presents the audience with a comedy experience that makes
them not only laugh, but feel comfortable in any live
environment. Her distinctive spin on stand up comedy has
turned many heads and she is quickly gaining an enviable
reputation for a unique brand of comedy that is warm,
inclusive, and unpretentious

Hatty hit the London circuit around 2009 playing various
London clubs, progressing from 10 to 20 min sets to headline
spots. She has played along side the likes of Josie Long,
Stewart Lee, Issy Suttie and Robin Ince at the Udderbelly on
South Bank.

She also loves MC-ing and has compered various London
clubs including her own club for three years. In 2012 she co-
hosted talent show Star Search at the notorious
Bethnal Green Working Mens club . It was the most
creative and effective way I have seen of producing a
warming and friendly atmosphere.
Three Weeks.

2011 saw a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
with her first solo 40 minute show Hatty Ashdown-Nan
Child
receiving a 4 star review from Three Weeks and
featuring in The List's top 5 Free Fringe Shows.

Presenting
Hatty’s first love is radio; she has appeared on BBC Radio
London with her own live slot of Hattys Haberdashery
covering the arts & crafts of London and a what's on guide.
She then went onto to present her own shows on Jnet,
Shoreditch & a weekly slot on Croydon Radio.

Hatty’s personable and warm stage persona is something that
she has put to good use not only in stand-up but also in TV
presenting, interviewing celebrity names such as James
Brown, Lou Reed and Esther Rantzen for the BBC and
Channel 4.

Acting
Hatty played Dawn Whipple Poe on Marshal's Law
which was nominated for best new sitcom by the British
Comedy Guide. She was previously seen as Medusa on the
Nickelodeon show Ross Lee’s Ghoulies.

After graduating she performed in two theatre companies,
including her own one woman character show Chick
Habit
at the Ipswich festival. Hatty has also had
photographic career as character model for Mr Kipling,
Nicorette, Play Station & Heinz Beans to name a few!
