ANIA MAGLIANO

FOLLOW

Ania is a comedian, actress and writer from London.

She ventured into comedy at the tender age of fifteen with a highly successful YouTube channel that attracted over 26,000 subscribers and currently boasts over one million views. Ania is currently in her final year reading English at Cambridge University and has been a member of the esteemed Cambridge Footlights since her first year. Her first show in 2017 ‘Dream Sequence’ enjoyed a complete sell out run at The Pleasance Ace Dome and further success with a US tour immediately afterwards in the September of that year. Since then she has appeared in many Footlights shows across the UK. She is also currently filming a web series ‘Magpies With Mirrors’ with several other cast members set to launch in 2019.

As a solo performer, Ania is making quick and impressive strides into stand up comedy.  In 2018 she was a Funny Women Regional Finalist and Chortle Student Comedian Finalist. She added Finalist in the 2 Northdown New Act Competition to that list in early 2019. Remarkable for someone still in full time education. She has written for The Now Show, for BBC Radio 4 and has a widely read Fresher’s Column for the Cambridge University Paper. 

An intelligent and gifted actress, Ania has been involved both on and off stage in many Universty productions. Her acting credits include Moth in ‘Loves Labours Lost’, Jan in Bedroom Farce and Twitcher in ‘A Fool To His Folly’. Her directing credits include Hatch, Two, Immaculate & Mojo.

Ania is also a co-founder of ‘Stockings’, an all-female and non-binary comedy collective that support and inspire women in comedy. She organises, promotes and co-hosts their regular comedy night, Cambridge’s only exclusively female/non-binary night.

Ania performed her first half hour of stand up at The Fringe in 2018 alongside fellow Cambridge Footlight Riss Obolensky. The show earned a five star review from Diva Magazine and was listed by Comedy Central as a ‘show not to miss’. She has since previewed her debut Edinburgh hour ‘LasAnia’ to audience and critical acclaim at Vault Festival in 2019.
