Celya is the most unique emerging talent on the UK circuit. Originally from Paris, France and of French – Algerian origins. Celya is now residing in the sunny city of Birmingham and has been making a huge impression on the UK comedy scene despite only starting her comedy career in 2017. Able to perform in French & English, Celya’s sharp writing brings a unique look into life as a EU expat living in post brexit Britain. With a very likeable stage presence and natural ability Celya looks destined for the top. Celya has appeared on BBC One’s Funny Festival Live and in the Funny Women Awards Finals.
I was shocked and appalled by Celya’s sharp and annoyingly observant gags. An exciting and promising writer.” Joe Lycett
