Fearless, provocative and very funny, Ria Lina is a highly accomplished comedian, writer, actor and one of the hardest working performers in the business. A hugely admired act on the UK comedy circuit, she commands respect from the moment she walks onstage and delivers with natural ease, energy and fierceness. Ria is the only female Filipina comedian in British stand up and headlines at major clubs in the UK and internationally.

This multi-award winning artist has performed for audiences across the world and has been the finalist in multiple comedy competitions. She won Best Comedy Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe and was a finalist in Amused Moose Comedy Awards at the Edinburgh Fringe.

With a a BSc in Experimental Pathology, an MSc in Forensic Science and a PhD in Virology under her belt, it’s not only Ria’s comedy that’s highly intelligent. A regular pundit on Sky News and BBC News, 2020 has seen Ria in demand for both her scientific insight and biting wit.

Ria’s TV credits include BBC World Service International Comedy Night (BBC iPlayer), Comedy Underground (BBC Scotland), The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Mega Mela Malai (BBC Two), Sweet n Sour (BBC Three), The World Stands Up (Comedy Central), Asian Network Comedy (BBC iPlayer).

A prolific writer, Ria has written for the Ladyboys of Bangkok ‘Fantasy & Feathers’ and ‘Glamorous Amorous’ tours, and wrote and acted in ITV2 comedy sketch show ‘Meet the Blogs’. She has also written and presented her own Channel 4 documentary that revealed the truth behind the myths that surround East Asian women in Britain. Ria currently has three scripted projects in development, so 2021 is set to be a big year for her!
