SASKIA PRESTON Prestonian

Saskia, writer for BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack, is making a name for herself as an act who delivers up offbeat one liners and observations in a unique and playful style. A finalist in the Max Turner Comedy Award 2013, Funny Women Award 2013 and Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian of 2013 competition, Saskia was also shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award 2013 broadcast on BBC Radio 4 extra and more recently (2015) she was in the Laughing Horse New Comedian of the Year Final.

Saskia has performed at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival for the last 4 years, sharing an hour with her comedy peers and now has progressed to her own solid 40 minute show for 2017.
