Debra Jane Appelby

Debra-Jane has that magical spontaneous quality to her comedy, delivering piss funny material with all the charisma of a Peter Kay. She has true funny bones and oozes laughs from her every line and her every look - one to keep a close eye on in our never ending search for comedy stars of tomorrow

Shane Allen, Commissioning Editor of Comedy at Channel 4

 A no-nonsense Yorkshire lass who has to be one of the funniest female comedians around today, Debra is hilariously blunt and unapologetic in her approach from the offset.

Winner of both The Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, and Funny Women Comedy Award, Debra-Jane has appeared on BBC’s 28 Acts in 28 Minutes and on Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up as well as regular appearances on BBC Radio 5 Live, and as a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour.

In a class of her own when it comes to improvising and interacting with an audience – razor sharp, never misses a beat.

Her brusque straightforwardness in her persona gives the sometimes sarcastic, sometimes surreal social commentary she delivers, a certain brutality that makes it all the more funny.  Simply wonderful..
