Female comedy duo comprising Lucy Pearman and Letty Butler. '... LetLuce also have a plot, in a manner of speaking. This breakthrough duo take the chaotic whimsy of the Boosh boys and raise it a notch or two... Lucy Pearman and Letty Butler sport the slick comic timing of long-serving professionals, but project the inventive charm of ingenues. Stardom beckons' (The Sunday Times) 'You're in for a bonkers hour... together they are dynamite' (www.TheGoodReview.co.uk) '... My personal favourite was the scrappiest and stupidest of the shows I saw: Show Pony by the duo LetLuce...' (Harriet Gibsone, The Guardian).

Chris Betts has performed all across Canada and the United States at independent venues, comedy clubs, and international festivals including the Comedy Works in Montreal, SXSW and the Zulu Comedy Festival. He moved to London in 2012, since when he has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year 2014. He has received numerous plaudits for his sharp material and relaxed stage presence. Chris Betts’ mind is a curious place, where the philosophical meets the ridiculous. His material is a perfect balance of incisive social satire and complete silliness. He has a style that is equal parts confident, thoughtful, ridiculous and mischievous. 'Chris Betts is tremendous' (Such Small Portions) 'Betts is in the upper echelon of the city's performers; universally respected and admired for his professionalism, dedication and unique perspective of the world' (www.examiner.com) 'unhurried delivery that reeled the audience in... unflappable stage presence' (London Is Funny) '... properly hilarious' (What's On London) '... an enticing prospect, a Canadian who deals in off-kilter thoughts sharpened by the occasional prod at taboo topics' (The Independent).
