Biography

Miranda Dawe

At drama school I was told I was like a young Imelda Staunton and she has exactly the kind of career I aim to have, crossing all genres and media.

I also admire and aspire to the current raft of female creatives leading television in the States including Mindy Kaling and Tina Fey to name but two, so I am constantly creating my own work. My career highlights so far include: the long running sketch show 'NewsRevue' at the Canal Cafe Theatre; a soloist in the ‘Thursford Christmas Spectacular’ in Norfolk; and performing my own stand up show at the Edinburgh Festival in 2015.

I would love to do more dramatic roles; we must keep in mind that comedy is harder to do, so I must be a very good actress indeed and my Oscar is surely just a heavy weight gain and prosthetic nose away. 

Stand Up: In 2012 I took a stand up course with Amused Moose run by Logan Murray and in 2013 I was a semi-finalist in the Funny Women Awards. In 2014 I performed in the Bath Comedy Festival with 'What The Frock'. I was a member of improv comedy group 'Red Lorry Yellow Lorry' and I now run variety night & quizzes as part of my company 'That Silly Productions'. Click here for my writing news
