Grace Campbell (born 1994) is a comedian, writer, actress, and feminist campaigner from London.

Early life

Campbell attended Parliament Hill School. The daughter of journalists and political advisors Alastair Campbell and Fiona Millar, much of Grace’s childhood was spent in and around Downing Street, a perspective which has informed much of her work.[1]

Career

In 2018 Grace made her television debut on Channel 4 with Riot Girls, a feminist prank show which Campbell co-wrote and performed in alongside comedians Sophie Duker, Cam Spence, and Jen Wakefield. Campbell and the Riot Girls pranked unsuspecting members of public on issues such as pubes, periods, and man-spreading.[2]

Campbell started her stand up career in 2018, doing small open mic nights all over London and in 2019 Campbell made her Edinburgh Festival Fringe Debut with the show ‘Why I’m Never Going Into Politics’ a one woman comedy show about her childhood, and why she’s subsequently never having a career in politics.[3][4]

Campbell co-founded the feminist group The Pink Protest, a collective of activists who campaign on UK based feminist issues.

Campbell also hosts a podcast with her father, Alastair Campbell, called 'Football, Feminism and Everything In Between'.[5]

In 2020, Campbell wrote her debut book; Amazing Disgrace, a book about 'shame'. Amazing Disgrace is a revealing part memoir part manifesto about young women’s relationship with shame, told through Grace’s eyes.
