Harriet Braine is a musical comedian, who dedicates a remarkably large portion of her oeuvre to Art History.
After winning Best Newcomer at the 2016 Musical Comedy Awards, she started gigging around London and the South East and has played at venues as diverse as Up The Creek, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Brighton Komedia, and that building that looks like a cheese grater. She reached the final of Gilded Balloon’s So You Think You’re Funny? competition, and was crowned the winner of the Funny Women Stage Award 2016.
Harriet was listed as One of Culture Trip’s 11 up-and-coming comedians to see in London Spring 2017 “Her range of impressions have hit home all over London” (Culture Trip).
2017 saw Harriet debut at the the Edinburgh Fringe with her superbly titled show ‘Total Eclipse of the Art’. The show sold out every day and Harriet made numerous appearances at the BBC Tent including an interview with Jonathan Ross for his BBC Radio 2 ‘The Arts Show’.
