Kerry Howard is an English actress best known for playing Laura in Him & Her and Leanne in Witless. Here she vlogs for The Huffington Post UK on how she "fell into" comedy after seeing her brother Russell on stage, how she wants to honour and replicate the work of leading women like French and Saunders and Victoria Wood, and why casting agents shouldn't look for trends in female comedians or writers and instead "just go with what's funny".
Kerry will also be appearing in Wednesday's episode of Drunk History on Comedy Central at 10pm. In the episode she drunkenly narrates the story of Beatrix Potter, which stars Emma Bunton and Blake Harrison.
