Mae Martin is an award winning Canadian comedian, actor, writer, and producer who can be seen starring in Feel Good; a scripted, semi autobiographical comedy drama series, which they also created and co-wrote.
Co-starring Lisa Kudrow and Charlotte Ritchie, the series launched globally on Netflix and Channel 4 in the UK to widespread praise and a perfect 100% “Certified Fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Mae’s performance earned them a RTS “Breakthrough Award” and Bafta TV award nomination as well as “Best Comedy Writer” again at RTS. Feel Good also won the Edinburgh TV award for “Best Comedy” as well as the “Best Comedy Drama series” at the C21 award and “Best Scripted Representation of LGBQT+” at the Mipcom Diversify Awards.
Mae’s last stand-up show, Dope, focused on addiction and was nominated for “Best Comedy Show” at the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Awards while earning four and five star national reviews in the UK. The show has since been turned in to a stand-up special for Netflix as part of their first global stand-up series, Comedians of the World.
Mae Martin’s Guide To… series about sexuality and addiction were both BBC Audio Drama Award nominated and are available to listen to on BBC Sounds.
Mae is also the author of Can Everyone Please Calm Down?: A Guide to 21st Century Sexuality, published in May 2019 by Hachette imprint Wren and Rook.
