One of the best stand up comedians in the UK, Rhona Cameron made an impact on the comedy scene in 1992, winning Channel 4’s ‘So You Think You’re Think You’re Funny’ award.
A decade of sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows and tours in the UK, and A/NZ followed. TV includes ‘Have I Got News For You’, ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’, ‘Graham Norton’ and ‘The Frank Skinner Show’; hosting 4 series of BBC2’s pioneering ‘Gaytime TV’ and in 2000 her first BBC sitcom series, ‘Rhona’.
In 2002 she joined the West End cast of ‘The Vagina Monologues’, before heading off to the Australian jungle for the massive ITV hit, ‘I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here’ for which she won a ‘Best TV Reality Moment’ award. Her famous ‘Sometimes’ speech is now part of television folklore. Rhona went on to present ‘Russian Roulette’ and ‘The Luvies’ and Rhona’s Rudest Videos’ for ITV, as well as guesting on ‘Jonathan Ross’ and ‘Parkinson’.
She played the first ever female narrator in ‘The Rocky Horror’ show on tour and then in the West End. In 2003 she wrote her first book – ‘1979 A big year in a small town’ to critical acclaim, an autobiographical account of a year in her life in childhood.
Since then Rhona has appeared in a national tour of ‘Grumpy Old Women’ along side fellow comedienne Jenny Éclair. In 2007 her debut novel ‘The Naked Drinking Club’ was published. She returned to the Gilded Balloon after a four year break from stand up, for a sell out three week run.
2008 saw the paperback edition of the ‘Naked Drinking Club’ and after another stint at the Edinburgh Festival Rhona embarked on a UK tour.
Rhona is currently touring as she still enjoys it and it allows her time to develop various writing projects for television and film.
