Down-to-earth and direct but likeable and chatty, Kerry’s take on life and family has been showcased on Live at the Apollo and 8 Out of 10 Cats, as well as her own Radio 4 sitcom. Her acting talents have seen her star in the Netflix comedy Mascots, BBC One’s military drama Our Girl, and the acclaimed Ricky Gervais series Derek and After Life.


Biography

Kerry Godliman is a comedian and actor whose work ranges from her own radio sitcom to Live at the Apollo, from the National Theatre to BBC One’s Our Girl to Ricky Gervais’ Derek and After Life.

As a standup, Kerry’s line in down-to-earth observations about life, family and laziness have been a hit on Live at the Apollo and on panel shows including Mock the Week and 8 Out of 10 Cats. She’s also appeared on Radio 4’s News Quiz, The Now Show and Just a Minute, and her own show, Kerry’s List.

Kerry’s acting career started with brief appearances in the likes of Casualty and The Bill but grew to parts in Him and Her, Miranda, and Extras. She’s perhaps best known for her roles in Ricky Gervais’ bittersweet sitcoms, Derek and Afterlife. Proving the breadth of her acting range she’s also starred in the Netflix comic film Mascots, the BBC military drama Our Girl, and on stage in the National Theatre’s exploration of immigration England People Very Nice.

Live Kerry is likeable and chatty but frank and to-the-point when taking on universal topics from the gentrification of British pubs to her struggle for (and ultimate loss of) power in her relationship with her children.
