Cally is a natural storyteller full of intelligent, distinctive and punchline-rich material. Her act is a rollercoaster ride of anecdotes, observations and stuff even your best mate wouldn’t admit to.
She is listed in Chortle’s: 2017 Comedians To Watch and her Finalist credits include: Fresh Comedy Knights 2016, Max Turner Prize 2016, Bath Comedy Festival 2016 and Gotham Comedy New Talent New York 2015.
Cally took her first show, Cat Call, to Edinburgh in 2016 with comedy partner Catherine Bohart, where it received a Malcolm Hardee Award. Her debut solo show, Super Cally Fragile Lipstick, was a sell-out hit at Edinburgh in 2017, receiving 4**** reviews, national press coverage and picked as Best of Edinburgh Fringe by The Arts Desk.
She has appeared several times on BBC Radio 4, including most recently on Museum of Comedy, and her first episode of QI on BBC2 is due for transmission in January 2018. She is a popular and seasoned speaker and MC on the corporate and after-dinner circuits.
Cally relishes engaging with live audiences and turning gender stereotypes on their head.
She is awesomely funny. And modest too.
But don’t listen to all this, listen to these people (only one of whom is a blood relation):

“Cally Beaton is an exciting and hilarious talent, definitely one to watch. Sometimes you just know when someone’s got it – and she’s got it” Time Out
“Properly funny. A real find” Sandi Toksvig, comedian, writer, presenter
