Mandy Knight

Once described as “as frisky as a terrier on heat”, Mandy Knight is a true dame of British stand-up comedy.The first female comedian to compere that bastion of old-school stand-up The Comedy Store, our Mandy has been breaking down barriers all her life.She attended the famous Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. After becoming fully-trained as a classical actress, and then using her diploma to spend four years in the traditional acting alternative career as a waitress, Mandy Knight decided to ditch the period frocks and the pinafore and enter the world of stand up comedy. When asked why, Mandy said it was due to an irrational fear of a life in fringe theatre, exploring her inner child by pretending to be an oak tree, a fridge or a tambourine.It is a decision she has never regretted. After almost 20 years as a comedian, Mandy Knight remains one of the most respected and loved stand-ups in the business by both fellow comics, promoters and punters alike.
