HOLLY SAYS :
Apologies for the fact this dreadful website looks like something I constructed on one of those BBC computers in the 80's. I'll be honest, I'm no tech whizz!
Someday, someone out there will do me a one that sings and smells but for now... read this, written in my best Times New Roman.
Holly is a regular guest on 'Sam Delaney's New Thing' on RTV

HOLLY'S WORLD CUP COMEDY SERIES- Episode 3:
Holly is a stand up and character comedian, she is also an actor and clown, trained under Philippe Gaulier. Endlessly inventive, relentlessly uncompromising and totally unforgettable, this hotly-tipped, silly and exciting renegade breaks all the rules.
The Independent chose her as their One to
Watch in 2013,
Harry Hill named her Best Comedy
Newcomer in Radio Times and
Eddie Izzard described
her as “Sexy and bonkers like Twin Peaks”. She was most
recently seen supporting The Mighty Boosh and has just completed filming the new ITV2 comedy series Bad Bridesmaid
"THE ONE TO WATCH 2013"
"Vivacious character comedian Holly Burn's mixture of the madcap, the surreal and the downright deranged has become more and more beguiling over the past few years. Harry Hill recently joined an ever-growing number of people enthusing about this kooky Geordie lass."- THE INDEPENDENT
-KATE COPSTICK, THE SCOTSMAN
"The extravagantly odd Holly Burn is a some-time sketch performer,
some-time character comedian, but in truth her refreshingly peculiar
material defies easy categorisation.
Burn's comedy mixes grand flights of artistic fancy with the basest kind
of silliness, and is all the better for it. Daft wordplay, clowning,
mime, surreal whimsy: all of these are tools she employs in the service
of creating her distinctive – and distinctly weird – comic universe."
"Like a holiday camp run by clowns and deviants... there's plenty of fun to be had"
- THE GUARDIAN
"Burn is so adorable that both the men and the women in the audience fall in love with her. A natural with physical comedy... and her writing reveals some absolute gems. Bribe or blag your way into the H Club post- haste"
