London Hughes Stand-up Comedian / Comedy Actor / Writer / Presenter

London Hughes is an award winning stand-up comic, writer, actress and presenter. Since winning the prestigious Funny Women Awards, she’s gone on to pen and star in TV and Radio and become one of the many loved faces of children’s television.

Most recently London has enjoyed comic appearances in BBC Radio 4’s satirical sketch series Newsjack, Roughcut/ Comedy Central’s sitcom I Live With Models, Hat Trick/ Channel 4 sci-fi pilot Space Ark, and Endemol and Beyond’s all female sketch show Sketch My Life for YouTube.

London started 2015 as part of the fresh presenting team for ITV and CITV’s weekend breakfast show, Scrambled! running every weekend from January – April, Scrambled was a mix of chat, games and comedy sketches with the presenters interlinking between shows in the CITV schedule. London also presented series one of the show in early 2014 alongside Luke Franks, Sam Homewood and Laura Jackson.

Autumn 2014 saw London starring in new comedy and reality hybrid Bad Bridesmaids for ITV2 whereby six brides-to-be allow undercover actresses to attend their hen night. If the comedians manage to convince the other members of the party that the ‘bad bridesmaid’ is a genuine friend, they will win a luxury holiday.  However, the undercover guests will test the bride’s nerves over the course of four days as they meddle with wedding proceedings by suggesting changes to speeches, first dances, vows and the order of service.

ITV comedy entertainment commissioning editor Claire Zolkwer said of the series “Bad Bridesmaids showcases some of the best new comedy talent in the country and it is amazing to see the comedians act their parts over four solid days with hilarious results – but always with female friendship right at the heart.”

London had her first feature film role in comedy It’s A Lot written and directed by Femi Oyeniran (Kidulthood and Adulthood) released nationwide in October 2013. London improvised a lot of the comedy material for her scenes and choreographed the numerous dance routines used throughout the film.

London also made her BBC Radio4 debut in August 2013 by writing and starring in her own sitcom pilot named 28 Dates Later. Loosely based on her life, the sitcom is about two girls that work in a cinema with a love of romantic comedies, but can’t seem to make their own love lives match up to the ones in the movies.

London started her television career presenting the morning show for CBBC for almost 2 years, in that time she also presented live links on BBC1 and BBC2 and made regular appearances on Blue Peter and snagged a presenter role in popular children’s show, All over the Place alongside Ed Petrie as well as voicing characters for CBBC’s comedy, Big Babies.

London went on to perform in programs such as sketch show For The Win on BBC3 (of which she wrote a couple of sketches), BBC2 sitcom The Stephen K Amos Show and Comedy Entertainment show Life: An Idiots Guide for BBC Radio 4.

London continues to perform stand-up all over the country.
