Lorna is a  critically acclaimed comedian, writer, actor and improviser. 

Since cutting her teeth in sketch comedy with duo That Pair who garnered critical acclaim and sold out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe between 2011 and 2015 and transferred to the Soho Theatre in London, she has quickly established herself on the stand-up circuit.

The following year she went on to become a Musical Comedy Awards Finalist and was shortlisted for the Funny Women writing award. She made her second solo offering at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 with an hour of narrative stand-up about true crime, law and justice that received wide praise for its honed writing and slick performance. 

As an actor, her TV and Radio credits include 'Plebs' ITV2, 'The Midnight Beast', E4, BBC Comedy Feeds 'Life Guru' and 'Newsjack' on BBC Radio 4 amongst others. 

Lorna trained at London's leading improv school, The Free Association, and performs regularly on one of their House Team's as well as regularly being cast in their other shows. Lorna will be appearing in several FA shows at VAULT Festival 2020. Watch this space.
