About Harriet Dyer

Hello, how are you? I'm Harriet Dyer, an alternative comedian, writer, speaker based in the UK. In 2015 I was diagnosed with Bipolar and ever since then I've been taking about mental illness in my comedy, here is an example of such
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/disability-39379545/h...

Due to my mental health I started to find gigging difficult so crafted my own little circuit of opportunities that worked best for me:

Barking Tales is my mental health comedy night. All the comedians do material related to mental health and the audiences that come tend to have mental health issues too. It's one of it's kind, has built up quite the little community and in 2019 it won City Life / Manchester Evening News "Best Comedy Night in Manchester" beating big dogs like The Comedy Store / Frog and Bucket etc and then in 2020 it won Chortle Best Themed NW Comedy Night, both of which I am most chuffed about. We very nearly moved venues to The Feel Good Club in Manchester recently but apparently there's a pandemic on which put a pause in that. I've got big plans for the night once able to continue with it. 

I've written a book about my life (Bipolar Comedian) and it's ruddy good if I may say so myself. I'll be reading a chapter from it on here every week plus general catch-ups too. When the world isn't being off its tits I'm resident compere at ROFL Comedy Club in Derby and film it all so shall put unseen clips from there on here too. I've always got a million different creative plates I'm spinning so I guess that makes here the showroom for them. 

Thank you so much for reading, if you can bung anything to help with any of my projects I'd be oh so grateful. If you're more of a one off donation kinda person head to buy me a coffee dot com forward slash harriet dyer comedy and do your worst. If you can't afford anything, absolutely no bother at all but do perhaps give us a little Cher? Have yourself a splendid day, thanks so much.

Harriet xx
