Featured on ‘Chris Ramsay’s Stand-Up Central’ (Comedy Central), Rhys Darby’s Comedy Blap ‘Furious Andrew’ (C4) and BBC’s New Talent Hotlist 2017, Evelyn Mok is the best thing to come out of Sweden since… IKEA?
Fresh off her Soho Theatre run, her “powerful debut” (Chortle) ‘Hymen Manoeuvre’ was “a refreshing hour of finely crafted stand-up” (★★★★ The Skinny) garnering her favourable mentions by Sarah Millican and Graham Norton, and winning her ‘Best Comedy Newcomer’ at The Pleasance’s Indies Awards.
An established act in her native Sweden, Mok was recently nominated for ‘Female comedian of the year’ and ‘Show of the Year’ at the 2018 Swedish Stand-up Gala and has featured on local versions of ‘Would I Lie to You?‘ (Tror du jag ljuger), ‘Have I got News for you‘ (Hårdvinklat) and ‘Fonejackers‘ (Telefonpiraterna).
Certainly living up to Time Out Magazine’s statement ‘One to Watch’, this very talented comic is boldly breaking the mold of what it means to be a woman of comedy in comedy.
“proves herself to have an ambition, originality and wit that augurs well”
