Hannah Platt

Hannah is a stand-up comedian, writer and Finalist of the BBC New Comedian of the Year Award.

Recently she has been nominated for Best Debut Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival, has wrote and starred in her own short for BBC 3 and has written for multiple panel shows on BBC Radio 4. Hannah has also supported the likes of Kiri Pritchard-McClean, Fern Brady and Lou Sanders on their UK tours.
