Isa Bonachera

Season 1, Ep. 20

With THREE Edinburgh Fringe's under her belt, Isa Bonachera is taking the comedy scene by storm. But did you know she took a full hour of comedy to Edinburgh Fringe her first year there? Or that she studied at Cambridge before falling in love with comedy? Or that she was preparing two shows for Edinburgh this year before it's unfortunate cancellation?

Find out how she works, how she got into comedy, what advice she would give her 16 year old self, bombing stories and which sex and the city character she would say she is...

Her comedy style has been described as “original and off-the-wall” with “well-crafted jokes” (Broadway Baby) that shows “a distinctively offbeat way of thinking, generating off-kilter punchlines that are hard to see coming” (Chortle).

Some of Isa's accomplishments include:

2019 FameLab regional finalist 

2018 BBC New Comedy Award finalist

2018 Phoenix Artist Club Cabaret Award third place

2018 Man Up! Drag King Contest finalist
