Nigel Ng grew up in Malaysia, lived in America for five years and moved to the UK in 2015.

Juliet Meyers as MC
Managing to mix silliness with edginess, Juliet has a chatty style that allows her to interact with the crowd; this makes her much in demand both as a comedian and an MC.
She has been bringing her own brand of hilarious, cerebral, observational, gag –driven, (mostly gender non-specific), comedy to the stage for 7 years.
