Clare Plested


Clare Plested is a comedy performer and writer. For over 12 years she was one half of ‘Plested and Brown’ – an international comedy touring theatre company who devise and perform original and innovative comedy productions.

In 2011, Clare debuted her first solo show, Vegas, Jesus and Me, at the Underbelly, Edinburgh Festival.

Since then she has drunk a lot and given birth to a cheeky monkey who is funnier than her.  So, in attempt to outdo her daughter, she has set up a monthly comedy night in Warren Street at the Square Tavern with fellow funny girl, Lesley Evans.

Clare is currently writing a new solo show for the Edinburgh Festival 2015.

‘Clare Plested: The Essential Collection’ is a brand new character comedy show. It’s the comedy equivalent of an emotional breakthrough album.

“…a sheer delight…fresh, witty and immensely funny…sassy and vivacious.” British Theatre Guide
