She was recently shortlisted for the prestigious 99 Club Bursary for female and non-binary comedians, a Max Turner award finalist , and Leicester Square new act of the year semi-finalist. Emily is half of the comedy production company Blazers Presents and has made a name for herself across London as an MC and comedian.

Emily will be debuting her split bill show ‘Bitch and Nerd’ at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival and her solo debut hour the following year. "A striking take and a gift for finding the funny side of everything" -Bruce Desseau, Beyond The Joke “forever beaming with a jolly smile, even while excoriating herself over her looks or lack of self-respect, or being brashly honest about life... there’s something refreshingly engaging about her quirky presence.” -Steve Bennett, Chortle
