"I saw her recently and she blew my socks off. Funny in her own right, she was brilliant, clever and she’s gonna be huge." BBC Online
"Karen is one of the most consistently hilarious comedians I have had the pleasure of working with." Joe Lycett

Karen Bayley is a Midlands based act hailing from Birmingham and has been on the circuit for over a decade. She made a name for herself early on in her career reaching the semi-final of the prestigious BBC New Comedy Awards and was later crowned the winner of the 2001 Komedia New Act prize. Karen was the first ever female winner of the prestigious Comedy Store King Gong award as well as reaching the finals of both the BBC New Comedy Awards Showcase and Babycham Funny Women.

Delightfully saucy, her friendly and confident stage presence, combined with a killer wit, an infectious giggle and some devastating one-liners make her a comedic force to be reckoned with. Warm and welcoming with a hilarious spiky edge, her bold, no nonsense attitude strikes a perfect pitch with men and women alike.

Karen supported Joe Lycett on his 2016 tour and also appeared in the Aviva Goth Advert Campaign.
