Ania Magliano is a comedian based in London. She’s a triple threat (bisexual, Gen Z, bad at cooking). Her sharp, wry writing combined with her warm conversational performance style make her a ‘glittering new talent’ (the i Paper) of the UK comedy scene.
Her debut hour of comedy, Ania Magliano: Absolutely No Worries If Not, won Best New Show at Leicester Comedy Festival 2022, and sold out entire runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and Soho Theatre. An extra date was put on at London’s Leicester Square Theatre for one night only, which also sold out. The Times described it as ‘the sort of elegantly amusing, surprising and inspiring debut hour that you come to the Fringe to see’, whilst the Guardian listed it as one of 10 Fringe Shows Not To Miss, saying it ‘will have you crying with laughter’. This was followed by her first ever UK tour, selling out (multiple) shows in Bristol, Glasgow, Brighton and Salford.
Ania Magliano also writes with comedian, journalist and viral sensation Amelia Dimoldenberg on Chicken Shop Date and Amelia’s Cooking Show, featuring guests such as Ed Sheeran, Charli XCX and Louis Theroux, as well as her hosting of the Vanity Fair afterparty at the Oscars.
She has opened for Ed Gamble, Marc Maron and Catherine Cohen. She has been heard on various podcasts including Off Menu, Films to Be Buried With, Pappy’s, Trusty Hogs, Cuddle Club and The Moon Under Water.
She has also appeared on ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show and Dave’s The Comedy Guide to Life.
As a writer, she has written for The Emily Atack Show (ITV2), Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC2), Newsjack (BBC R4) and The Now Show (BBC R4). She has also done corporate writing and content creation for major brands such as BeautyPie and PrimeVideoUK. She has written multiple well received columns for the Metro (UK), and also publishes her own newsletter on Substack to hundreds of readers. Ania Magliano has a growing social media following, including 25k followers on Twitter, and over 1 million views on Youtube with over 20k subscribers. She’s recently branched out into TikTok, amassing over 1.8 million likes and 22k followers. You may recognise her from one of her previous hair colours.
