An award-winning, critically acclaimed, socially conscious clown, Helen Duff studied at LAMDA, L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier and the University of Cambridge. ‘Vanity bites back’, her solo debut, premiered at the Edinburgh Festival 2014 to great critical acclaim, earning her a Fringe First nomination. The show was subsequently invited to open VAULT Festival 2015, was programmed for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Adelaide Fringe.
Named as a finalist in 2015’s Brighton Comedy Festival and Squawker Awards, and in the 2017 Amused Moose New Act Awards, Helen Duff’s shamelessly silly, yet whip-smart brand of clowning comedy has continued making waves at home and on the international circuit.
For CC4K Helen makes great use of her abilities to impersonate food, and inveigle children into doing the same.
