Wendy Wason Scandal

ABOUT ME


A Scottish actress and comedian, Wendy launched her comedy career in 2004, getting to the final of Funny Women and semi-finals of So You Think You’re Funny at the Edinburgh Fringe the following year. She was already an established actress with roles in Coupling and the IT Crowd working with everyone from Chris O’Dowd and Nicholas Lyndhurst to Johnny Depp and John Malkovich. February 2014 saw Wendy nominated for best actress in Hollywood for British Hustle, the Toscars spoof.

 

Whilst her acting career continues, her comedy career has taken off. 2008 saw Wendy in America on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and was also the year she did her first one-woman show at The Edinburgh Festival: Things I Didn’t Know. Her charisma and wit ensured packed houses. After the success of that she returned with three further solo shows culminating with this year’s knock out show, Hotel California. She has performed in all the major UK clubs such as Just the Tonic, The Glee Club, The Comedy Store, The Stand, and Laughter House in Dublin. In 2012 she was invited to the New York Comedy Festival and charmed audiences there too. She currently performs as part of The Cutting Edge at The Comedy Store in London and has written and stars in her own sitcom for BBC Scotland – Half My Age Plus Seven, due for broadcast in October 2014 and she writes for the Huffington Post.
