About Me


Hello! I'm Jane Postlethwaite. I'm a Cumbria Comedian, Writer and Actor. As well as being here to make you into a Comedy Writing Badass - I'm a Funny Women Awards and a Brighton Comedy Festival Squawker Award Finalist. 

Over the last four years I've written and performed four different one woman comedy shows for Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. These shows have been sold out and gained 4/5 star reviews. My shows have been nominated for two Brighton Fringe awards - the Latest Comedy Award and for the Audience Choice Award.

I was recently heard on the Radio 4 comedy drama, 'Almost like being in love' written by Catriona Knox and produced by Caroline Raphael. The play stars Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones and Moorside) and Rosie Cavaliero (Hunderby and Midsomer Murders).

I was also heard on the BBC New Comedy Award Heats 2018 on Radio 4 Extra. As well as writing a brand new comedy show each year, I'm also one half of the Miraculous Cumbria Podcast - Cumbria's first ever comedy podcast and I'm working on various comedy scripts for radio and TV.
