Cally is a natural storyteller full of intelligent, distinctive and punchline-rich material.  At the end of last year Cally won the prestigious 2017/2018 Piccadilly Comedy Club New Act of the Year competition after being tipped as one of the comedians to watch for 2017 by Chortle. Her radio and television appearances include: BBC Radio 4, including most recently on Museum of Curiosity, Radio 6 Music and her first episode of QI on BBC2 aired in January 2018.
