I am an Actress, Character Comedian and Improviser.
I have taken four of my character shows to the Edinburgh Fringe (one of which “Creatures” won a ThreeWeeks Editor’s Choice Award) and regularly perform on the London comedy and Improv circuit.
My numerous characters include an elderly mermaid, a folk singing Tony Blair, Andy Warhol in a giant can of soup and a horse who has had plastic surgery to become a unicorn.
I co-run Cabarera, the monthly era-themed comedy night for which I create new characters each time. I was a series regular for series 1 and 2 of the BAFTA nominated sketch show Definitely Not Newsround (CBBC).
As an improviser I am part of Showstopper The Improvised Musical and Monkeytoast. I also have a two-prov group BEINGS.
I have a podcast with comedian Gemma Arrowsmith (www.gemmaarrowsmith.com) “Hayley and Ruth, Two Stars”, which is hosted by the British Comedy Guide. https://www.comedy.co.uk/podcasts/hayley_ruth_two_stars/
