NOMINATED – LEICESTER MERCURY COMEDIAN OF THE YEAR 2018
FINALIST - BBC NEW COMEDY AWARD 2018
PART OF THE PLEASANCE COMEDY RESERVE 2018
As seen and heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Three and Comedy Central Online. In 2018, Helen headed to the Edinburgh Festival as part of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve. This year, she will bring her highly anticipated debut hour to the Edinburgh Festival. She is also a writer and performer for thehookmag.com.
After leaving college with an E in Economics and an allergy to the education system, Helen Bauer moved to London to share a bed with her cousin and work in Accessorize on Oxford Street. She lived in London until she was 23, making sketches, waitressing and drinking. She then moved to Berlin to do the same there, and discovered stand up.
Helen honed her comedy skills, performing in English, to confused Berlin locals. You can now find Helen’s creative writing, charming attitude on stage and special love of pop music all over London. Helen was runner up in the Max Turner Prize 2017, a Semi Finalist in So You Think You’re Funny 2016 and Regional Finalist in Funny Women 2017.
As featured in Stylist Magazine’s ‘Edinburgh Shows to See’.

**** Evening Standard – “Passionate, articulate, witty.”
**** The Sunday Times – “This sharp debut explores his many contradictions with primetime warmth. Watch him.”
