Angela Barnes

Angela Barnes (born 9 November 1976)  is an English stand-up comedian, mostly known for her appearances on Mock the Week.

As a fan of comedy, Barnes ran comedy nights in Brighton. In the summer of 2008, her father died, who was an important influence on her comedy and had always encouraged her to become a comedian. A year after his death, she decided that life was too short not to pursue it as a career. She did a 12-week workshop in Brighton, and a few months later started her stage career.
