Laura Riseborough is an Actor, Comedian, Writer and Improviser. She's clowned around town with some of the best, recently appearing at 21 SOHO, Brighton Fringe, BAC and guesting with Austentatious on their UK tour.
If you're looking for a Riseborough fix you can usually get it at the Free Association and in 2022 she hosted their main-house show 'Sliding Lives', where she interviewed comedy minds including: Mae Martin, Rose Matafeo, Clive Anderson, Andrew Hunter-Murray and Amelia Dimoldenberg.
If Riseborough wants to be taken seriously at dinner parties, she rabbits on about her Shakespearian stage work, treading the creaky old boards of the RSC, Barbican and Cuban National Theatre. Along side her audio adventures in Doctor Who, Torchwood, Cicero and not forgetting the improvised comedy-horror podcast ‘666 Hell Lane’.
