About

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 CBBC sketch show Definitely Not Newsround (for which I also wrote my own characters) and was a series regular for series 2 and 3 of BAFTA nominated sketch show Class Dismissed, also for CBBC.

As an improviser I am part of the Olivier Award Winning group, Showstopper The Improvised Musical. I also have a two-prov group BEINGS. I have guested with GTI, The Playground and The Actors Nightmare.

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/
