Stagedoor. "You will be in for a comic treat"
* PlaysToSee. "Brilliant" *
"Hilarious" (The Scotsman, The Independent). "Geordie power house" (Chortle).
Diagnosed with cervical cancer at the age of 24, Karen uses standup comedy to raise awareness of the disease. She's also funny. Very funny.
"Wickedly funny... it's hard to stop and pick holes when you're being carried away by this powerhouse performance" ★★★★ - The Telegraph.
MARK & HAYDN
Leicester Sq Sketch-off Finalists 2019. "Smart comedy operators we can expect to hear more from." - Steve Bennett, Chortle
Dimple's biggest fear? Looking down from heaven (post murder) to watch her religiously vegan parents learn that the contents of her last meal involved a chicken and an egg. Eye rolling and frustratingly stereotypical tales of living at home and being the A word. Part of Soho Rising Presents 2019.
Local Clapham lad Milo tells tales of woe and strife on the high street. He's talking; Drugs, money, beef and what it takes to be a hardman in London's wankiest district.
Remember a time before modern, so-called 'comedy' by edgy, so-called 'comedians'? Gay man Will Dalrymple ("Never again; is gay. ☆" - Rhiannon Shaw) and cum-gurgler Rhiannon Shaw ("Gurgles cum!☆☆☆☆☆" - Will Dalrymple) remember. Uncle and Auntie Comedy bring you anti and anti-anti comedy: a so-called Hullabalooo!
