About Carly Smallman

Carly loves comedy – it’s her whole life!  From writing funny songs, to telling jokes, this girl can’t get enough of making people laugh!  She has performed stand-up on the BBC, been a panel show regular for ITV, and hosted on Talk Radio…but her passion lies in live comedy.  She has played at some fabulous venues; from every major comedy club, to arts centres, The West End’s Vaudeville Theatre and the Hammersmith Apollo!

In 2016 she started Bring Your Own Baby Comedy with good friend Alyssa Kyria: lunchtime comedy clubs for parents, where they can also bring their baby.  This has been a runaway success, winning the HOOP Award for ‘Best Bring-along Baby Activity’ and ‘Best Mental Health for Parents’ at the UK Enterprise Awards.  Carly now runs these lovely clubs across the country, regularly popping in to MC or perform at the shows (and of course see the adorable babies!)

Combining a love for laughter and Tarot reading, Carly is also one half of comedy tarot show, Tarot, Nice to Meet You, alongside fellow comedian and Tarot reader, Sarah Iles. Their live shows have garnered lots of attention and critical acclaim, winning the ‘Best Audience Interaction’ award at The Brighton Fringe in 2022. Learn more.
