Morgana Robinson

Morgana Robinson is an award winning actress, having been awarded Cosmopolitan magazine’s Ultimate Funny Woman and Best Breakthrough Artist at the British Comedy Awards.

2017 is an exciting year for Morgana as she plays Eliza Doolittle in an upcoming new production of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion in her first radio drama for BBC Radio 4.

She also guest stars alongside Peter Kay, Fiona Shaw and Felicity Kendall in the final episode of the series three of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton’s darkly comic anthology Inside No 9 for BBC2.

Morgana reprises her role as Pippa Middleton in the second series of Channel 4’s spoof Royal Family comedy soap opera The Windsors from the writers of Star Stories, starring alongside Harry Enfield, Haydn Gwynne, Hugh Skinner, Louise Ford and Katy Wix.

Morgana Robinson’s The Agency was a BBC2 mockumentary about a fictional talent agency whereby Morgana played the entire roster of talent including Natalie Cassidy, Danny Dyer, Russell Brand, Fearne Cotton, Joanna Lumley, Mel & Sue, Greg Wallace and Miranda Hart. Morgana first proved her incredible mimic ability and talent to create compelling original comedy characters in her debut series The Morgana Show, followed by Very Important People, both for Channel 4.

Morgana’s first studio sitcom role was playing eccentric neighbour Julie in two series of Vic and Bob’s House of Fools, a BBC2 comedy written by Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, also starring Dan Skinner, Matt Berry, Daniel Simonsen and Ellie White. The BBC described the project as “half an hour of unadulterated Reeves and Mortimer – anarchic japes, unimaginable props and impossible situations with a stella cast.”

Morgana’s first appearance for Sky Arts was starring in Psychobitches; an all-star sketch show (Sharon Horgan, Rebecca Front, Sam Spiro, Frances Barber, Jack Whitehall, Kathy Burke, Sheridan Smith and Reece Shearsmith to name a few) that saw some of history’s most famous women pschoanalysed. Morgana played Anna Nicole Smith, Daphne Du Maurier and Mary Magdeline.

Morgana has enjoyed a succession of guest leads including Catherine Tate’s publishing rival in David Walliams’ Big School (BBC1), an insufferable boss in Jessica Knappett’s Drifters (E4), several appearances in Matt Berry’s Channel 4 sitcom Toast of London and Carol Caplin alongside comedy heroes Jennifer Saunders, Robbie Coltrane, Stephen Mangan and the late Rik Mayall in The Comic Strip Presents…The Hunt for Tony Blair (C4).

Further credits include Drunk History (Comedy Central), Crackanory (UKTV) and Charlie Brooker’s Weekly Wipe (BBC2).

Morgana’s journey to the screen has been a unique one. For years she worked part-time in a Soho Japanese restaurant, where John Noel was a regular. She was untrained, apart from an art degree and

seven years of school plays at Benenden School, and one day plucked up the courage to hand John a showreel at the front desk (which consisted of her flat mate holding a camcorder whilst she pranced about in various wigs/teeth/glasses.) John recognised (very) raw talent and asked her in for a meeting. He told her to “start throwing rice around.” Her restaurant days were over.
