Born in South London to Nigerian parents, Lolly Adefope is a comedian and actress famed for creating witty and evocative characters. With a sharp and observational eye, she has a knack for highlighting the silliness and absurdity in everyday behavior. In a personal essay for us, she wrote about the deathly boredom and endless monotony of an office job in her early twenties, and how it forced her to confront what it was that she wanted to do with her life. Lolly started her career as a stand up comic, but has since become a television star on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to her memorable roles in the British sitcom “Ghosts” and the American sitcom “Shrill.”
