NOMINEE: Best Radio Show – Scottish Comedy Awards 2020
Comedian Ashley Storrie can currently be heard hosting her eponymous BBC Radio Scotland show live every Friday from 10pm-1am. It’s available on catch up on BBC Sounds here.
In 2019 she co-hosted BBC Scotland’s Up For It which returned for a second series in 2020, as well as both headlining and hosting BBC Scotland’s Comedy Underground. In 2021 she will play the lead in a new BBC3 drama, Dinosaur, from Fleabag producers Two Brothers Pictures.
Ashley’s Edinburgh show Hysterical was released by NextUp Comedy in November 2019.
She is perhaps best known for her Harry Potter parody #tanyapotter, which was picked up by the national press and Lad Bible over Halloween and is currently at over 22 million views. She has since been commissioned by BBC Scotland to create online content for their Short Stuff strand, producing viral hits including If The Handmaid’s Tale was Scottish and If Game of Thrones Was Scottish.
As well as being a regular on BBC Radio Scotland’s Breaking The News, other credits include Socially Distant with Susan Calman (BBC Scotland), Fred MacAulay Live At The Edinburgh Stand (BBC Radio 4), The Blame Game (BBC1 NI), The Good, The Bad & The Unexpected (BBC Radio Scotland), Fresh From The Fringe (BBC Radio 4) and BBC Radio Scotland’s sitcom Jailmates
In 2017 Ashley retired from co-producing and co-hosting the Podcast Awards nominated “Janey Godley’s Podcast” with her mother, comedian Janey Godley, which had tens of thousands of listeners.
