Hatty Ashdown, Comedian
Each week in Creatives on Speed, Joanne Oatts talks to creative thinkers, makers and doers from all walks of life - about creativity and how they use it in their work.
This week: Hatty Ashdown, comedian, writer and broadcaster
Hatty is a super funny, multi-talented human with many strings to her bow. She's an actor and stand-up comedian, the host of podcast Funny Mummies, runs the baby-friendly comedy gig Screaming with Laughter, and is the co-writer of Comedy Central sitcom, Give Out Girls. Hatty talks about the influence of her family, why she loves writing on the train, and the technique she uses from Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way when she's stuck for ideas. Enjoy!
The team at Faster Ideas were really lucky to work with Hatty on our comedy short Don't Sell the Tiger a few years back (watch here), so we already knew Hatty was super fun to be around. Thanks to Hatty for bringing us more than a few smiles. Enjoy!

We'll be featuring creative people from all kinds of industries on Creatives on Speed. From DJs, artists and advertising creatives, to scientists, hairdressers and teachers - each will be talking about how they use creative thinking in their work.
It's not just about the creative industries, though. We're fascinated by how the minds of all sorts of people work creatively - whether or not they have 'creative' in their title. If you'd like to be featured in Creatives on Speed, please contact us
