Nina has won a British Comedy Award for storming 'Live at the Apollo', 'Russell Howard's Good News', 'Sunday Night at the Palladium', and made a BAFTA nominated film - all without even moving her lips.
Nina began her career as an actress at the Royal Shakespeare Company before the genius, and anarchic theatre director Ken Campbell inspired her to become a ventriloquist. In 2008 she won the prestigious Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for her solo show 'Complete and Utter Conti'. In 2010, 'Talk to the Hand' had sell-out seasons in Edinburgh, London, Melbourne, the Sydney Opera House and New York.
Other television credits include 'QI', 'The John Bishop Show' and Chris O'Dowd's HBO series 'Family Tree'. She is also a regular in 'Clare and the Community' – the Sony award-winning show on BBC Radio 4.
Nina has turned her hand to documentary film-making with her most recent exploit, ' Clowning Around' (in which she trained as a children's hospital clown), airing to great critical acclaim. Her directorial debut' 'Her Master's Voice' in which she took the bereaved puppets of her mentor, Ken Campbell, to a puppet graveyard in Kentucky, won her a BAFTA nomination and a Grierson Award.
