In this episode we talk about how Brodi Snook landed into the UK by herself and with no connections and, after thinking she was not even the funniest person in her own family, she worked hard to rise to become a successful gigging comedian and Chortle's best new comer in 2020. We talk about how lots of comedians are introverts and how best to take your opportunities when you can. We talk about the determination, focus, resilience and graft you have to have to make it, while remembering that there will naturally be ups and downs along the way.
Hailing from small town Western Australia, Brodi travelled to the UK and began her comedy career in 2014 by becoming a two-time RAW Comedy state finalist and in the same year made her mark on the international stage, reaching the final of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Brodi has since performed sold out solo shows at festivals across both hemispheres, most recently enjoying a successful debut at the Edinburgh Fringe with her latest show ‘Handful’, making it onto the UK Telegraph’s list of Best Comedy Shows for 2019 and in addition being named in their Top 40 Jokes of the festival. In 2019 Brodi also completed a run of shows in Norway and supported Ardal O’Hanlon on his spring and autumn UK tours. In 2020 she was named Chortle Comedy Awards Best New Comer
