Tamar Broadbent is a comedian, improviser, singer, actor, musician, award-winning songwriter and eternal optimist from the UK. She has written topical songs and sketches for the BBC (The Now Show, Sketchtopia) and filmed for Comedy Central Online’s Ones To Watch.
Having performed improv at the Free Association in London, Tamar is delighted to be among the newest members of the cast of Boom Chicago. She is also enjoying being the shortest person in Amsterdam, riding around on her new bike that was originally built for a 10-year-old boy.
Tamar performs stand-up regularly around the UK and has toured her solo musical comedy shows internationally, including an award-nominated run at Perth Fringeworld 2017 and five Edinburgh festivals. She has co-written the play Split with Emma Pritchard and the musical Club Mexicano with John-Victor, and is currently working on a brand new one-woman musical, Best Life.
In her free time, Tamar enjoys watching live music, writing songs, and drinking as much wine as is stereotypically expected of an English person.
