Esther Manito has enjoyed a startling ascent as a performer in the last four years. Thrown in to the fields of writing and stand-up after completing a short writing course at the Camden Comedy School in 2016, a wealth of accolades and rave reviews have followed. These include BBC New Comedy Award nominations four years running and achieving a finalist spot in both the regional Funny Women Awards and So You Think You’re Funny awards. To top it off the Anglo-Lebanese comedian was the first woman comedian to perform at the Dubai Opera House.

“Manito is an engaging and promising comic who will staunchly stand up for what she believes, and that alone makes her an interesting proposition.” – Chortle
