Miranda Katharine Hart Dyke, known professionally as Miranda Hart is an English actress, writer and stand-up comedienne. She writes and stars in this BBC sitcom Miranda. She has also appeared in French and Saunders and the BBC television series Hyperdrive.
This show is a sort of slapstick jolly hocky sticks comedy, and the character is a strange combination of Joyce Grenfell with a touch of Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques. Sounds strange I know, but somehow it works.
Throughout the shows she talks directly into camera to you the audience as if you are there with her. She is a vert tall person and uses this to her comedic advantage.
A very likeable character and show.
