Micky Overman is a comedian and writer living and working in the UK. She's originally from the Netherlands, giving her a unique and fresh perspective on all things British, comedy and life. She previously lived in Vancouver, Canada, where she studied acting and improv, adding to her skill set and forever sticking her with a slightly American accent.
She moved to London to start stand-up in 2015, quickly rising through the ranks (she was a finalist in Funny Women and Leicester Square New Comedian in 2016). In 2018 she was a Chortle Best Newcomer Nominee, and wrote and performed her first solo show 'Role Model' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
This year, she returns to the Festival, bringing her sophomore show 'Micky Overman Presents: Presenting Miss Micky Overman' to the Pleasance.
She's always loved comedy with a passion, and her belief that jokes are the best way to express feelings and emotions started young. Or as she puts it:
"When I was 3 years old, I tried to impress my sister's friend Jesse by falling off my chair. I like to think my passion for comedy was ignited at the same time as my passion for boys, and as Jesse did not respond to my advances in any way, both are firmly rooted in failure."
"the most accomplished comedian on the bill...she has a keen comic mind."
