Still a relative newcomer to the London comedy scene, Eleanor has the swagger and inventiveness of a veteran. A delightfully bamboozled presence on stage disguises a scalpel-like approach to dissecting the daftness of modern life and makes her a seriously funny proposition on stage. It's no surprise that despite her few years in the capital she's already a regular at the prestigious Comedy Store.
She's also a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, she was featured on Stewart Lee’s Alternative Comedy Experience on Comedy Central. She has played Glastonbury, Montreal Just For Laughs and all of the Irish comedy festivals. The IFTA-nominated Irish Pictorial Weekly on RTE was co-written and co-performed by Eleanor. Her National Therapy Project was nominated for the First Fortnight Award in the Dublin Fringe Festival this year.
