Caroline Mabey

Kooky and quirky Caroline Mabey is a true one off. She is a talented stand up comedian, compere and a highly skilled artist and animator.

She is also an accomplished character and sketch comedian, occasionally appearing as her grotesque creation, Helen Heels; Landlady to the Stars.

On the circuit since 2005, Caroline skilfully combines edginess with eccentric charm and mischievous banter with strong gags. This, along with her delightful audience interaction make her an ideal compere – she is currently the resident MC at the 99 Club, in London.

Caroline has taken two solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival so far. Both have featured interaction with her own animated cartoon sidekick ‘Kip the Coffee Pot’ and both were a big hit with the Fringe audiences.

Her first show in 2009; ‘Caroline Mabey’s Go Go Go Coffee Show!’ was described as ‘charmingly bonkers’ (Chortle) and was themed around the difficulty of waking up and Caroline’s dependency on caffeine. It also featured a cardboard alarm clock, some quirky music and some pretty sweet animation.

In 2010, Caroline took her second show ‘Eat Your Friends’ to the Fringe and alongside Kip, starred Mr Skrangles – animated scrambled egg. The show was all about breakfast – the most arrogant of all meals that needs taking down a peg or two, according to Caroline.

As an animator, Caroline designed and directed sketches for ‘Monkey Dust’ on BBC2 and made the title sequence for ‘Little Miss Jocelyn’ on BBC3 as well as hosting the British Animation Awards in 2010. Her TV credits are just as impressive, having appeared on The One Show (BBC1), The Culture Show, (BBC2) and Funny Business (BBC2).
