Samantha HANNAH

Ex-Pat Scottish comedian now cracking up crowds in NZ

“One of the funniest ladies on the planet” - Remote Goat

After a 5 year hiatus, Scottish Comedian Samantha Hannah blasted back onto the comedy scene in 2018 by trying to find a husband in a year and then writing a show about it. Imaginatively titled ‘How to Find a Husband in a Year’, this social-experiment-meets-stand-up-show saw her plastered across UK national news after meeting her perfect match 12000 miles away via Tinder while she was in New Zealand and he (a Kiwi) was in the UK.

In 2019 she upped the stakes with her new show 'How to find Happiness (in a Year)' in which her comic deep dive into the happiness industry saw her finally finding meaning to her existence. This show was voted in the top 10 for the Funny Women Best Show award in 2019 and was reimagined as a lockdown special on comedy streaming app the year after.

Her latest show 'How to Win @ Life' was recently performed virtually with Leicester Comedy Festival during further lockdowns in the UK. She was then delighted to perform it live in the room at BATS Theatre after relocating to Wellington with the aforementioned Kiwi fella.
