Grown from a carob pod in a sunny, Central Coast national park, Felicity Ward is multi-award winning comedian, actor, and writer.
With promising beginnings as Troll II in the Peninsula School of Dance and Drama’s performance of Aladdin: The Pantomime she’s never managed to match those dizzying heights, instead settling for regular appearances on Australian television shows like Spicks and Specks, The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, Good News Week, Talking About Your Generation, Thank God You’re Here, The Librarians, Can of Worms, The Project, The Circle, Studio Ten along with multiple appearances on The MICF Oxfam Gala and MICF Comedy All Stars. Most recently she starred in Ronnie Chieng’s International Student for ABC TV.
Following the success of her 2014 ABC1 documentary, Felicity's Mental Mission, Felicity was handpicked by the BBC in 2015 as one of the new faces of UK comedy starring in her own Live From The BBC special - the only Australian selected to be part of this new comedy series. She is a regular face on many other international TV shows including Russell Howard’s Good News (UK), Alan Davies’ As Yet Untitled (UK), The John Bishop Show (UK), Gotham Comedy (US), Make You Laugh Out Loud (UK), Sam Delaney’s News Thing (UK) and Access All Areas (CAN).
Felicity has also appeared in two feature films in recent years: Any Questions For Ben? (AUS) and The Inbetweeners Movie 2 (UK). Chortle UK Club Comic of the Year nominee in 2014 and 2016, Felicity has also been nominated in Australia for Best Comedy at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, and won Best Australian Act at Perth Comedy Festival, and Sydney Comedy Festival, twice.
She has toured her award-winning, sell-out shows across the world, winning hearts of audiences and critics everywhere she goes.
In short: she goes alright.
