Winner Channel 4 New Comedy Writers Award 2005
Winner Buxton Festival Fringe Best Comedy Performer 2008
Helen Keen is a comedian and writer born in Yorkshire and now living in London.
She was a finalist in numerous national stand-up competitions and in 2005 won the first Channel 4 New Comedy Writing Award.
Her 2008 debut solo show It Is Rocket Science! (about the history and development of the space rocket) received the Buxton Festival Fringe Award for Best Comedy Performance. The show went on a lengthy and successful tour of the UK - taking in and frequently selling out comedy festivals, major music festivals, science festivals and even three performances at London's Science Museum - including a show in the famous Space Gallery beside real space craft. And, in 2010, BBC Radio 4 commissioned Helen to write and appear in a comedy series based on the show, which will be recorded later this year.
