Bec Hill is an Australian comedian, writer, presenter, actor, director, and YouTuber born in Adelaide who is now based in the UK.[2]

She incorporates arts and crafts into her stand-up routines in something she calls paper-puppetry.[3] Her "paper-puppetry" can be likened to pop-up books or the Japanese storytelling technique of Kamishibai.[citation needed]

In 2016, she was a co-host of Sky's "DC Fancast" and "DC Fancast: Unmasked" with Des Taylor and Rick Edwards.[4][5] She has also appeared on several series of CBBC's panel show The Dog Ate My Homework,[6] and starred in the 2014 Sundance UK Grand Jury Prize-winning short film "Russian Roulette", directed by Ben Aston.[7]

Her one-liners have featured in best-joke lists for media outlets such as The Telegraph,[8] Dave,[9] The Guardian,[10] The Independent,[11] Daily Record[12] and Buzzfeed. She has also appeared in a worst-joke list.[13][14][15] She has also written for The Amazing World of Gumball, Bluestone 42 and The Now Show.[3] Her short animation directorial debut, "Scoring Pointes", aired on Disney XD in 2016.[16]

In February 2021, she appeared on Channel 4's 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (episode 5 from series 21) alongside Susie Dent in Dictionary Corner.[17]

She hosts podcasts including A Problem Squared with Matt Parker, The DesignSpark Podcast, and Con Sessions.

She has also collaborated with Jay Foreman on three of his YouTube videos, entitled “Dinosaurs”, “Fiddle With Your Balls” and “Robot Olympics”.
