Leila Navabi is a 22 year old comedian, screenwriter, producer and actor from South Wales.
She has written across many comedy titles for various UK broadcasters. She created the Radio 4 special 'BAMESHOW' which was received with great critical acclaim. It was dubbed 'mould-breaking, evidently sharp satire' by The Guardian. In 2021, she was asked to represent Wales in writing a short drama for the Radio 4 anthology series 'United Kingdoms'.
Leila most recently co-wrote the six-part BBC iPlayer series 'Vandullz', in which she also stars. It is due to air in the Winter of 2021.
She is quickly becoming a hot-ticket act on the UK stand-up circuit and has performed sets across shows including 'Stand Up in My House' The Leak' and 'Stand Up Sesh'. She will soon be appearing on BBC's 'Live from Aberystwyth Comedy Festival'.
She hosts CBBC series 'Don't Blame Me, Blame My Brain' alongside fellow comic Ken Cheng.
Leila has multiple projects currently in development both in the UK and internationally.
