Psycho-intense singer-songwriter Loretta Maine makes Courtney Love look well-balanced. This pill-popping, booze-abusing, bunny-boiling car-crash of a rock star has been the most memorable creation of talented character comic Pippa Evans to date, and is now promoted to both her own show and her own band, Dog Vagina.
'Funniest show yet, with miserable songs with superbly witty lyrics' (Time Out)
'Murderously funny' (Evening Standard)
'Fabulously talented... Her brilliantly realized comedy shows maturity well beyond her years... Her psychotic yet sexy American singer is a thing of hysterical beauty (Time Out)
'Beautifully bitter lyrics... Truly impressive one-liners... inspired, quotable pearls of wisdom... Fine comic writing underpins her flawless, perfectly timed performance
She's a relative newcomer, but has certainly got the talent for a sustained and stellar career in comedy (Chortle)
'Like Dolly Parton seen through the lens of Mike Leigh... she performs brilliantly
observed songs about love, loss and violent revenge (The Guardian).

Phil Pagett is a one-liner comedian and joke-writer, described by Mock the Week's Gary Delaney as "One of the country's best new gag writers."
A quickfire gag-merchant in the tradition of Stewart Francis, Milton Jones and Emo Philips, Phil's act is 'an unusual routine of, smartly crafted and vastly diverse one-liners takes his audiences on an amusingly clever ride' (Funhouse Comedy).
Phil Pagett tour dates
The stand-up comedian, actor and improviser has been spreading joy and nonsense to all four corners of England, as well as the more choice bits of Wales and Scotland over the past few years. Crowned Comedy Cafe New Act of the Year in 2009, Ben hosted the prestigious Big Value Comedy Showcase at the Edinburgh festival in 2012.
'A sharp and crafty gagsmith with wittily obtuse takes on an impressively wide range of topics, bringing flair and confidence to them all' (http://www.chortle.co.uk)
'Highly promising... an accomplished comic' (Time Out)
'Van der Velde brings a natural charm to proceedings from the outset, with some
wonderfully improvised riffs... showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine)
'Flaunted his razor-sharp wit to hilarious effect leaving the audience bent over double' (Three Weeks)
'Exquisite comic timing... wonderfully clownish physical comedy' (British Theatre).
