Lolly Adefope is an award-winning character comedian and one of the most exciting comedy actors to emerge from the UK in recent years. Her solo, multi-character live shows have garnered 5-star reviews and led to sellout runs at both the Edinburgh Festival and London’s West End.
Lolly’s extensive broadcast credits include starring in Loaded (Channel 4/AMC), Shrill (Hulu), Ghosts (BBC), Damned (Channel 4), and Taskmaster (Dave Channel). She has previously filmed an authored Sky short Lolly Adefope’s Christmas, which was nominated for a Broadcast Digital Award. This summer saw Lolly co-star in the feature films The Spy Who Dumped Me and Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
Lolly was included in The Evening Standard’s 2018 Progress 1000, the annual list of influential Londoners; voted The Observer (newspaper) Rising Star of Comedy, 2017; and won both The Hospital Club’s Breakthrough Award 2017 and The Chortle Variety and Character Award 2017.
Lolly recently contributed a short story to the award-winning book, Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and is currently developing her own broadcast projects.
