Writer - Actor - Performer
Nikola McMurtrie is an award winning comedy writer and performer - is verbatim how she introduces herself.
From the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, Nikola is a Scottish performer who moved to London to revel in a life of writing about herself in the third person - and, oh boy, does she love it!
Originally trained as a dancer, she studied at The Dance School of Scotland before
going on to earn a theatre degree from Bird College.
Her love of comedy writing came in 2015, when she began posting sketches and comedy songs online, gathering thousands of subscribers, a few viral hits and the desire to boast about it in online blurbs.
Alongside her writing she has featured in a number of theatre productions, films and videos - including adverts for American Express, Domino's Pizza and Paddy Power.
Her recent accolades include winning the Funny Women Awards 2020 for her short film "Karaoke: Behind the lyrics".
Winning the British Comedy Guide Video contest in June 2021 for her comedy song "Introverts coming out of lockdown" and in December 2021 she won the Fulwell 73 Video Competition for her comedy dance film "Too Close".
She was also featured in Heat Magazine as one of the heat Comedy Content creators for 2021.
Nikola is currently in the finals for the Musical Comedy Awards 2022 which will be held at the Bloomsbury Theatre on April 9th.
