Camille is a writer-performer and one third of comedy sketch group Birthday Girls alongside Beattie Edmondson and Rose Johnson. She plays a lead role in upcoming improvised sitcom Lee and Dean for Channel 4, and features in BBC1’s new Saturday night entertainment show, Ready or Not. Camille recently starred alongside Suzi Ruffell in BBC3’s post coital comedy series, Climaxed and as part of the sketch troupe in improvised topical show Host The Week hosted by Scarlett Moffatt for Channel 4.

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 Birthday Girl's popular Game of Thrones parody sketch was made into an online short by Comic Relief for Red Nose Day. 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 HouseSwashbuckle, and Spotbots...

Camille studied Drama and English at the University of Manchester and has level 4 improv training with Monkey Toast UK. Her theatre credits include Outings a collection of monologues about coming out, and an adaptation of Gogol’s Marriage, both among a comedic ensemble cast and whose productions first started at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Outings culminating in a UK wide tour.

Camille’s film work includes being directed by Andrew Haigh alongside Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay in the feature 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.

In comedy, Camille has appeared in Matt Lucas’ BBC1 silent comedy series Pompidou, the BBC1 comedy drama Truckers alongside Harry Treadaway, Gittins a 4Funnies for Channel 4 and executive produced by Ricky Gervais whereby she played the daughter of character comedian Brian Gittins, and as Bubbles’ 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.
