Helen Austin

For over 15 years Helen Austin has been making audiences laugh as one of the UK's top live comedians.

"a quick wit and warm sense of humour" (Time Out).

Since moving to Canada in 2002 she is now also making them cry with her poignant, mostly autobiographical songs.

"Helen Austin has wowed audiences at the Cafe with her style and her way of bringing her stories to life in her songs" (Comox valley Record).

Helen now spends most of her time writing and singing in Canada but still regularly returns to the UK for comic relief.

"A female comdian with no axe to grind"

Helen has been and continues to be one of the funniest live acts in the UK today, winning Best Jongleurs Performer Award in 2001.

She has played west end venues such as The Haymarket and The Palladium in London's West End , is a favourite at the Glastonbury Festival and has supported comedians which include Eddie Izzard and Julian Clary.

Her radio and TV appearances are numerous, but she is at her best in the live arena where she is one of the very few female comedians to regularly headline at Jongleurs and The Comedy Store.

Although she can occasionally be a little harsh with some of the male audiences members, she is a popular act with both women and men.

"a cut above the average punning minstral"

"stunning.....stole the show"

"voice of an angel, mind of a sewer"

....and from her most recent trip to the UK....

"Helen cut a swathe through the audience with brilliant pastiches"
