Nina Conti is a ground-breaking comedy ventriloquist, BAFTA nominated filmmaker and British Comedy Award winner. She is highly sought after for her corporate after-dinner cabaret performances with her trusty sidekick Monk. 

Nina Conti started being a stand-up ventriloquist in 2002 and shot to fame by winning the BBC New Comedy Award that same year. Famed for her foul-mouthed ‘sidekick’ Monkey (Monk), Nina has won numerous comedy awards for her writing, acting and ventriloquism.  

This female comedian is a regular on our screens with hugely successful appearances on Russell Howard’s Good News, Live at the Apollo and The John Bishop Show.  Nina has also appeared on QI, Celebrity Squares, Sunday Night at the Palladium, the Rob Brydon Show and HBO’s Family Tree.

Nina Conti regularly headlines at UK and London comedy venues, appears at international festivals and previous corporate clients include Nokia, Deloitte, Caspian Publishing, AAH Pharmaceuticals , Jardine Lloyd Thompson, Adobe, the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Incisive Media, the DRP group, PWC Events, and Euromoney, not to mention countless individuals’ private parties. Nina’s sophisticated intelligence and playful style suits a wide range of corporate audiences, and Monk can be as clean or as rude as each client wishes!

Nina’s broadcast work includes four series of Claire in the Community, the BBC Radio 4 Sony-Award winning series, and a starring role in BBC Radio 4 Comedy show Sneekiepeeks. She has appeared in several television shows, including Comic Relief, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Take Away, Golf War , Blunder, The Late Late Show, One Free Hand, Tickled Pink, Single, the BAFTA-winning Black Books, The Rob Brydon Show, and, most recently she played a lead role in, HBO’s new comedy series Family Tree, alongside Chris O’Dowd.

Nina has fronted two documentaries for BBC 4. In 'Make Me Happy: A Monkey’s Search for Happiness' Nina takes Monk on a journey into the world of new age and alternative therapies. She also directed, and produced a well recieved documentary that year, 'A Ventriloquists Story: Her Masters Voice\, in which Nina took the bereaved puppets of her mentor and erstwhile lover Ken Campbell on a pilgrimage to Vent Haven. The documentary went on to be nominated for a BAFTA TV Award.
