Winner of the EMMA Award for Best Comedienne 2003, Ria Lina makes an impact with her dry wit and bawdy ukulele songs. Having been a regular in stand-up comedy for the past 10 years both in the UK and abroad, she returns to the circuit after a short family break.
Recent projects include writing for the Ladyboys of Bangkok 2010 “Fantasy & Feathers” tour, and writing/acting for a comedy sketch show for ITV2 (Meet the Blogs).
In the past, Ria has written and presented her own documentary for Channel 4 revealing the truth behind the myths that surround oriental women in Britain; other projects include the comedy series, Malai Monologues, for BBC 3; The World Stands Up, for Comedy Central (USA), the Paramount Comedy Channel (UK), and the Comedy Network Channel (AUS); and Sweet n’ Sour Comedy Sketch Show for BBC3.
