Saskia Preston ("Superb gag-writer”: London Is Funny"

Saskia Preston has made a name for herself as an act who delivers up offbeat one liners and observations in a unique and playful style.  She was shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award 2013 broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

Saskia has performed at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival since 2013, and in 2016 was in two shows, This Is Our Summer Holiday (sharing an hour with Sophie Henderson) and Sarah and Saskia with Comedy Chums (a mixed compilation show with Sarah Iles).    

Born in the UK, Saskia spent her childhood in Hong Kong and Portugal before returning to Britain to study English at the University of St Andrews. Previous to starting comedy Saskia had a career in advertising and journalism and has written for, among others, The Guardian and The Financial Times.
