Fat Penguin Comedy Club Presents:
NINIA BENJAMIN Ninia Benjamin is one of the UK’s hottest female comedians with a wealth of television, stage and live stand-up experience.
Ninia was catapulted to stardom as one third of BBC3′s 3 Non-Blondes, which later transferred to BBC2 and BBC America before going to a second series, shown internationally. From this, her talents have been showcased across all the major UK channels in a variety of roles, as a presenter, studio guest, actress and reality TV star. Ninia was crowned the Winner of Celebrity Scissorhands 2007 (BBC3) in which she and a host of celebrities cut and styled their way through two weeks in a televised salon, raising thousands of pounds for Children in Need. She was also a contestant on the hit Living programme, The Underdog Show in which celebrities were paired up with rescue dogs which they had to train in preparation for a number of obedience tests and she has made two hilarious appearances on BBC1′s Hole in the Wall. With an infectious sense of humour and effervescent screen presence, Ninia is a favourite guest and commentator for many popular discussion shows, for example Sky Comedy Close Up. Other recent television appearances include Total Wipeout and Celebrity Masterchef whilst her vocal talents can be heard in CBeebies’ Tinga Tinga Tales from February 2010.
Susan wrote for and was a guest on Jeremy Hardy Talks To The Nation and has also starred in Stephen K Amos’ Idiots Guide both for Radio 4. She has penned 4 successful solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival as well as performing in several comedy plays and sketches. She made her TV acting debut in the 3rd series of ITV’s “The Job Lot” alongside Jo Enright and Russell Tovey. She is currently presenting on East London Radio and about to go on tour with Britain’s Got Talent star Daliso Chaponda.
“Her ability to make quirky connections allows her to build a compelling believable and richly funny picture of 21st century womanhood..Anyone who loves the work of Sarah Millican and Kerry Godliman will find plenty to enjoy here” The Guardian
