Camille Ucan in Top 5 Celebrity Splits | Comedy BLAPS

Camille is a writer-performer who studied Drama and English at the University of Manchester and has level 4 improv training with Monkey Toast UK.

She is one third of sketch group Birthday Girls alongside Beattie Edmondson and Rose Johnson, 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 and enjoyed a sold out run. The Skinny described the show as ‘A different class… This is joy.’

Camille will be starring in Channel 4’s improvised sitcom Lee and Dean in 2018 as well as BBC1’s new primetime entertainment show Ready Or Not. She also recently displayed her sketch comedy skills in improvised topical show Host The Week hosted by Scarlett Moffatt for Channel 4.

Camille also writes comedy regularly for children’s television. Current projects include Scrambled! for CITV (her second series writing on the show), Bitz and Bob, a new animated show encouraging girls’ interest in STEM, and Yoyo, a brand-new science-based sketch show she is helping develop for Cbeebies. She has written on many other popular CBeebies shows including Justin’s House, Swashbuckle, and Spotbots...

Starting its run at the Edinburgh Festival, Camille also stars alongside fellow comedians Zoe Lyons, Rob Deering and Andrew Doyle in live stage production Outings, a collection of monologues about coming out, directed by David Grindley and with ongoing UK tour dates.

Camille’s favorite jobs last year include starring in Matt Lucas’ BBC1 silent comedy series Pompidou, being directed by Andrew Haigh alongside Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay in the film 45 Years, and getting to embody a sulky bridesmaid in Natasha Khan’s (aka musician Bat for Lashes) first ever short film I do, and playing Fanny, a disgusting character amongst a comedic ensemble cast with sketch comedy legends from Pappy’s, Lazy Susan, The Beta Males and Adam Riches in an adaptation of Gogol’s Marriage.

Some of Camille’s favorite acting jobs ever include the BBC1 drama Truckers alongside Harry Treadaway, Gittins, a 4Funnies for Channel 4, executive produced by Ricky Gervais whereby she played the daughter of character comedian Brian Gittins, and as Bubble’s intern in the 20th Anniversary specials of Absolutely Fabulous.

Camille also does a lot of improv and loves a prank; she smelt Harry Styles’ hair when playing a One Direction super fan from New Zealand whilst improvising a prank with Ant and Dec for ITV’s Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.

Alongside her Birthday Girls co-horts, Camille was founding member of the critically acclaimed sketch group Lady Garden (‘Britain’s funniest women’ – Telegraph). They were Edinburgh Festival favourites and Hackney Empire New Act of the Year award finalists. They wrote and performed sketches for the first series of BBC3’s Live at the Electric, BBC Radio 4’s SketchoramaBBC2’s Dick and Dom’s Funny Business, and they appeared in the Comic Relief spoof Uptown Downstairs Abbey for BBC1.
