Laila Bouromane writes screenplays, stage plays and the occasional TripAdvisor review. She recently had two of her comedy sketches commissioned by Channel 4. Her first sketch, All Restaurant Menus These Days, in which she played the part of the waitress, received over 8 million views on C4 Facebook. She also directed her second sketch, I Can’t Remember Your Name. Drunk on the wild success of her sketches, Laila is currently developing her comedy pilots Dead End, Guardians and Loose Ends.
Those Channel 4 sketches:
Laila has also written and produced two plays with Hambre Productions, the theatre company she co-founded. Her debut play, Absolute Certainty, in which she also performed, received blush-inducing reviews and her second play, Lost Unfound was performed to sold out audiences at the White Bear Theatre in South London.
In her leisure time, Laila enjoys playing with her Bedlington whippet (not a euphemism) and writing moderately amusing paragraphs about herself in the third person.
Reviews of her debut play, Absolute Certainty:
For a debut play, Absolute Certainty is a pretty fine piece of writing.
