Birthday Girls are a comedy sketch group who are very good at writing sketches but not very good at writing biogs. They are: Beattie Edmondson (the funny one), Rose Johnson (the funny one) and Camille Ucan (the funny one), whose five-star rated show Sh!t Hot Party Legends enjoyed sell out runs at the Edinburgh Festival, and as a result was transferred to the Soho Theatre which also enjoyed a sold-out run. The Skinny described the show as ‘A different class… This is joy.’
2018 will see Birthday Girls launch their first comedy podcast series with BBC Radio 1. In each episode of Birthday Girls House Party, they invite the listener to a different themed party they are hosting- from a wake to a posh dinner, putting the world to rights with warm and weird late-night conversations and drop-ins from comedy guests.
The group continue to write for various children’s TV shows including Scrambled! for CITV, Bitz and Bob, a new animated show encouraging girls’ interest in STEM, and Yoyo, a brand-new science-based sketch show they're developing for Cbeebies. Other CBeebies writing credits include Justin’s House, Swashbuckle, and Spotbots.
The Birthday Girl's popular Game of Thrones parody sketch was made into an online short by Comic Relief for Red Nose Day. They have also written and performed sketches for ITV2 comedy entertainment series @elevenish and worked with producers Turtle Canyon on a mini web series and are developing other scripts for TV and online.
Birthday Girls perform regularly on the live comedy circuit and at various festivals such as Latitude, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Mach Comedy Fest...read more
They have also featured on BBC Radio 4’s Sketchorama, appeared in BBC1’s Absolutely Fabulous and, alongside sketch group Pappy’s, formed the ensemble cast for the second series of the BBC Bitesize videos, and featured in Channel 4’s Robert’s Web.
Beattie, Rose and Camille are all former members of critically-acclaimed sketch group Lady Garden (‘Britain’s funniest women’ – Telegraph), who also performed regularly at the Edinburgh Festival, were finalists in the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year Competition, and appeared on BBC3’s Live at the Electric, BBC1’s Dick and Dom’s Funny Business, BBC1’s Comic Relief parody Uptown Downstairs Abbey, and BBC Radio 4’s Front Row and Sketchorama.
