TWAYNA MAYNE

BIO

LEICESTER MERCURY NOMINEE 2016

‘Superb deadpan wit’ | TIME OUT

‘A stand-out act with bags of potential’ | THE STAGE

Twayna Mayne’s distinctive downbeat style paired with her deliciously honest material has taken her to the finals of numerous competitions including the prestigious New Act of the Year & Up the Creek’s One to Watch.

In 2016, she became a Leicester Mercury Nominee and starred in the prestigious AAA show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

A strong black woman with an extraordinary back story, in her highly anticipated debut show Black Girl – coming to the Edinburgh Fringe 2017 – this truly unique rising star guides us through a lifetime of labels and contradiction.

Having been marked out by Time Out as a ‘Star of the Future’ Twayna Mayne is a refreshingly original new comic voice and most definitely one to watch.
