who is hannah fairweather anyway?
Award-winning Scottish comedian Hannah FairweatheR is the Taylor Swift of comedy, joking about everyone who has wronged her in the past
more about me...
According to the t-shirt I wore throughout my childhood and my birth certificate, I am a proudly Scottish comedian and writer.
My birth certificate doesn't actually have my occupation listed on it, but like most insufferable comics, I insist that I was born to do this.
According to many people who hear my unfortunately unScottish accent and proceed to tell me about their travels to my least favourite country, I'm Australian. This is an accusation I am appalled by and vehemently deny.
Australian immigration agrees with me on this point and it’s the only thing we see eye to eye on.
According to a guy called Chris, I am the least likely person to become a professional comedian of all the people he has ever met.
According to me, this was incredibly hurtful because we met while working at an accounting firm.
...professionally... ha! in your face Chris!
Hannah Fairweather is writing this section in third person to create the illusion that she has a team of people working for her. Hanna thinks a presumption of outsourcing will make her seem more professional. Hannah thought that spelling her own name wrong in the previous sentence would add to the illusion, because no one would spell their own name wrong.
Hannah Fairweather is a stand up comedian and writer and Chris is still an accountant.
As you can probably guess, Hannah is primarily motivated by revenge. Hannah likes to share jokes about people like Chris who she feels have wronged her in the past. Hannah's therapist thinks this is a classic case of "using humour as a defence mechanism". Hannah's therapist insists it is not the healthiest way to seek closure and also believes Hannah needs to work on her dependency issues. Hannah thinks this is rubbish, because her therapist is the one who wants to see her twice a week.

except These are my own)
Hannah's defence mechanism has managed to make her the 2019 Rising Star New Act of the Year, and in the same year a semi finalist in the BBC New Comedian Award, So You Think You’re Funny, Komedia Brighton, 2Northdown and Leicester Square New Comedian awards as well as a finalist in the Max Turner Award. She has written for BBC’s Mock The Week and The Now Show and has been heard on BBC Sounds, BBC Radio4 and Union Jack Radio.

I am performing my debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year and I have never been more excited or proud of a piece of work.
My show is called "Just A Normal Girl Who Enjoys Revenge". And, obviously, like any other normal girl, my main inspiration is Dwight Schrute from the US Office.
In my show I reveal list of people who have done me wrong, kept in my little blue book. I have taken inspiration from her favourite writer Taylor Swift to compile such a list and it includes the usual suspects - ex boyfriends, ex colleagues, ex flatmates, podcast hosts and, of course, some devout Christians I met while playing college golf in South Carolina.

NEED A WRITER?
I have previously written for radio & TV (including BBCs Mock the Week & The Now Show), articles for The Metro & Funny Women. I have written stand up for award winning comics and helped them punch up existing material. I have also written loads of sad things in my diary and my pathetic little blog (which is also linked above)
For examples of my work please click on the logos on the first page of this website, or indeed any picture on this website - most all link to past performances, upcoming ticket listings or various pieces of writing.
For any of your writing needs or to find out more about me (I am happy to provide a CV and writers packet), please fill out the form below or reach out on social media, DMs are open!

"Hannah is an excellent writer of jokes who, crucially, was quick to understand my voice when I appeared on Mock The Week. She was a joy to work with, giving me more jokes than I needed and was all too accommodating with any changes I needed.
If you want someone who writes excellent jokes, with an excellent turnaround, and is a joy to work with, hire Hannah. If you don’t like those things, hire someone else and weep."
