Not so much a comedian as a force of nature, Spencer Brown is ripping up the comedy circuit like a cartoon tornado. Young, fresh, and like nothing you've ever seen before; crowds have been wowed by his childlike anarchy and Looney Tunes physicality in performances described by Time Out as "more an event than a gig." Seeing Spencer Brown is like a plugging into the comedy mainframe, so prepare to have your mind blown: this is refreshing, goofy comedy that will make you love life. He has performed stand-up on The Live Floor Show (BBC 2), Four at the Store (R4), and The Best of Edinburgh Comedy (BBC 2).
He has also appeared in Garth Merenghi's Darkplace (C4) and written for Smack the Pony (C4).

"Cutting Edge, Critically acclaimed and now clean cut: Could this be the future of comedy?" The List
She has written for BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, Huffington Post and Glamour Magazine and has traveled (parts of) the world with her comedy. She has performed in Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland and most recently in Australia where she won the Percy Award for most tickets sold in 'The Imaginarium', (over 1900 tickets) during the Adelaide Fringe.
In August 2016 she performed her debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe, 'Jen-Hur' which received reviews such as '★★★★★ An Excellent comedic work' - Edfest Mag and '★★★★ A brilliant show and well worth a watch' - Arts Award Voice
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.
