Anne Hirsch

Portrait shot as part of the ongoing close-up portrait project of Morne van Zyl.

Anne Hirsch studied drama at Stellenbosch University and went on to do her Masters at UCT. She’s a writer, MC and comedian best known for her online show ‘The Anne Hirsch Show’ and presenting BBC Lifestyle’s ‘The Great South African Bake Off’ – despite the fact that she doesn’t know a spoon from a spatula. She’s established herself as one of the country’s top comedians and MC’s, but improvising and watching Game of Thrones still remains her favourite pastime. Oh, and Angelina Jolie is her best friend…
