From stand-up to This Way Up: The Comedy Genius of Aisling Bea
President of the Jury of the Short Form Competition during Season 04 of CANNESERIES, the Cannes International Series Festival, Aisling Bea granted us an exclusive interview in which she talks about her series This Way Up, whose season 2 is available on MyCANAL since October 25, but also about her relationship to the world, to comedy and to her Irish roots
Aisling Bea’s brilliant BAFTA winning series This Way Up that she wrote, produced and starred in has recently aired on Channel 4 in the UK, Canal + in France, and on HULU in the US. She became the first woman in 20 years to win the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? competition for new stand-ups. Just a year later, her debut solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe, C’est La Bea sold out its entire run, received five-star reviews across the board and she was nominated for the ‘Foster’s Best Newcomer Award’. Aisling can currently be seen starring in The Comedy Line Up and in the fantastic Netflix Original series, Living with Yourself alongside Paul Rudd.
