After a career in health and social care, Angela Barnes took the plunge and embarked on her life-long dream to be a comedian. Within a couple of years she had won the 2011 BBC New Comedy Award and became a finalist at the 2011 Latitude Festival New Act of the Year competition. Since 2011, Angela and her witty worldview have been catapulted onto numerous radio and television shows including appearances on BBC One’s Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo and BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz. In 2017 she took over the prestigious role as host of BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack.
“She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic” The Guardian
