Nina Conti stars in HBO's mockumentary comedy "Family Tree" as Tom Chadwick's (Chris O'Dowd) sister.

Nina Conti started doing stand-up and ventriloquism in January 2002 and shot to fame by winning the BBC New Comedy Award that same year. Since then for her writing, acting and ventriloquism she has won a load of other comedy awards, including the prestigious Barry Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival for her solo show "Complete and Utter Conti," which toured the UK.

Following a sell-out season at Edinburgh of her 2008 show "Evolution," she returned both to Melbourne and to the Soho Theatre London in 2009. Her follow-up show was named "Talk to the Hand."

Conti is possibly best known for her "sidekick" hand puppet Monk. She regularly headlines at UK and London comedy venues, and has appeared at The Comedy Store and Soho Theatre. She is also a regular at international comedy festivals, such as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Montreal Comedy Festival.

Conti and Monk portrayed a morning weather team on the fictional "Wake Up L.A." in Christopher Guest's 2006 feature film, "For Your Consideration." They also appeared in Alan Freestone's low-budget film, "Peacock Season," about the Edinburgh Festival, and she made her directorial debut with "Her Master's Voice" at the SXSW Film Festival in Texas.

UK television credits are numerous and include "Mock the Week," "Comic Relief" and "Single" in addition to the BAFTA-winning "Black Books."
