Micky Overman, who last year was nominated for the Chortle Best Newcomer award, is a rising star who originally hails from Amsterdam but trained in Canada, a bedrock of surgically sharp writing combined with a cool and confident delivery make her an exceptional comedian. Her material moves quickly from devastating honesty, to brutal whimsy, to on-point social observations. She already has the aura of a successful comic well beyond her years.
Micky has only been gigging 2 years but has advanced explosively in that time and is currently in the finals for 3 national competitions, all making it look easy in her second language. She’s beaten the gong at London’s Comedy Store and has been asked back to perform there.
She was recently picked to be part of the prestigious Just For Laughs London New Faces showcase and can be seen smashing gigs all over the UK.
