Sophie Schubert, co-founder of Rolling Thunder, has been named to the roster of Dope Rollers of the Year.
Rolling Thunder is an annual British-style comedy festival which takes place at London’s Olympia Theatre.
Rollings is one of the UK’s largest comedy nights.
The festival draws more than 50,000 people to London each year.
The festival takes place in June and features acts including Emma Stone, Tom Jones, J.J. Abrams, and Stephen Fry.
The award will be presented to the top performer in the categories “comedic comedy”, “act comedy”, and “musical comedy”.
Schubert will compete for the award in her first appearance at the awards show.
The 36-year-old is best known for her role as Sophie in The Dope Roller, the first film by her company, which has also been nominated for the best film and TV awards at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.
The comedy is a love letter to Schuberton’s upbringing in the British capital.
The DopeRollers is a new charity that brings together comedians, producers, writers, directors, actors and more to collaborate on and produce their favourite films and television shows.
The charity has won seven awards since it was founded in 2015.
Its biggest success to date was for the film The Dopey Stag, which became a best comedy documentary.
In 2017, Rolling Thunder won its first award for best comedy production, a BAFTA.
Rolls also won two prizes for the UK and UK Indies.
The awards ceremony will take place on May 27 at Olympia Theatre in London, and the winners will be announced on June 2.
