EXISTENTIAL QUESTIONS

Who Am I?

...personally...

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.

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, 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.

Testimonials

& criticism for healthy balance

"absolutely cracking jokes, delivered with aplomb and a devilish grin"

LLOYD LANGFORD, COMEDIAN

"Hannah may look all sweetness and light but do not be fooled. Lurking behind that butter wouldn't melt exterior is a dark humour that will catch you beautifully unawares every time. A joy to watch and to work with."

riCH wilson, COMEDIAN

A COMEDY connoisseur, BUMBLE

"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."

ESHAAN AKBAR, COMEDIAN

"poor public speaking skills"

If you want to talk to me directly, I am incredibly flattered and you can do that via my instagram, Facebook, or twitter accounts. Links to all these can be found above. 

However, you should know, I am not in the world of showbiz for the fame and adoration from strangers. 
I am completely in it for the money.
