Ellie Taylor

As seen on Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week and Drunk History!

Most recently you may have seen Ellie on Live at the Apollo or  Mock the Week (twice), or starring in the Disney Channel’s worldwide hit series ‘The Lodge’.

Previously, Ellie has got her hands dirty trying to rid the UK of fake tan for BBC3’s make-under show ‘Snog, Marry, Avoid?’. She’s also acted as team captain on ITV2’s panel show ‘Fake Reaction’, been ‘Poppy’ in Comedy Central’s ‘Brotherhood’ and occasionally popped up on Channel 4′s ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’.

Or maybe you’ve just seen her in Pret. She’s in there a lot, especially on mushroom risotto day. But, she is a confident and utterly hilarious performer; a breath of fresh air on the comedy circuit.

Ellie’s solo shows have been hugely successful at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Her debut; ‘Elliementary’ was featured in the British Comedy Guide, The Guardian, The Big Issue and Stylist Magazine. It was a show looking at love, life, Matalan and other such hard-hitting issues. “…littered with comic gems” (The List) this show was so popular, she put on a run of extra weekend gigs to accommodate the demand and then on a national tour whilst still doing regular warm-up slots for The Graham Norton Show. As well as this, Ellie appeared on Sunday Brunch, The Wright Stuff and conducted live interviews with the cast of Eastenders for their highly anticipated ‘LIVE’ week.

In 2016, not only did she make more TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, The John Bishop Show, Drunk History, Celebrity Squares and more!) Ellie also returned to the Edinburgh Fringe with new solo show ‘Infidelliety‘. As a happily married woman, Ellie used this show to explore that pesky bit of marriage known as monogamy. She spent the Autumn touring ‘Infidelliety’ which included an extended run of dates at London’s Soho Theatre.

Currently, Ellie is writing a new show for 2017, and is warming up her vocal chords in rehearsals for ‘Lets Sing and Dance for Comic Relief’.
