Cerys Nelmes

Comedian Profile

West Country Stand Up Comedian Cerys Nelmes, born and bred in the centre of the Cotswolds! Cerys hasn’t always been a comedian. In fact, she only made her move into comedy in 2011, having previously been a firefighter.

After fighting fires, Cerys went along to a comedy workshop… at which she was offered her first ever five-minute spot just one month later at the Leicester Comedy Festival.

Cerys has had a very colourful and eventful life which she loves talking about to make people laugh. She performs her comedy in a story telling style with a West Country charm that is easy to warm to.

Cerys is well on her way to forging a strong career in the comedy industry after working hard on her material over the past few years. She is a leading MC on the comedy circuit, working for major UK clubs and UK charity events. Cerys has a fantastic stage presence and her audience interaction is flawless. The infamous ‘Teenager’ appears in her more recent work due to audience demand!
