Hannah grew up in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight and has since spread her wings into the world of comedy.

She kick-started her career with a degree in comedy from Southampton Solent University, finding herself labelled “officially Britain’s funniest woman” by The Sun newspaper.

Performing a stack of stand up gigs, she honed her craft.
