BBC New Comedy Award’s Digital Comedian of the Year and Funny Women Comedy Shorts finalist 2021 Holly Hall, will be debuting her short film ‘It’s What She Would Have Wanted’ at 10.30pm on BBC Three on Tuesday, 1st November.
The film, written by and starring Holly, also features a stellar line up including Fiona Allen, Kiell Smith-Bynoe and Kate Robbins.
‘It’s been really fun to play such a deeply-flawed character and the cast are incredible!’ says Holly. ‘I’m so grateful to the BBC for my first comedy baby… this should buy me a few weeks off from my parents asking me “when are you going to give us grandkids?”’.
The film was shot in and around London and asks the question – if someone close to you dies…. is it always a bad thing? In grief, Holly sees an opportunity, and this is a story about sad things happening to bad people.
This is a busy week for Holly. In addition to the film, Holly’s debut live show ‘You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry’ begins its work in progress run at The Bill Murray on Thursday 3rd November. The show looks at our frustrating and sometimes hilarious inability to express our anger as you navigate the anxiety-ridden ups and downs of life. Ticket link here.
