Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
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).
Loretta Maine tour dates
The world's first comedy blues band. Satirical, political, edgy and sexy comedy songs. They've played everywhere from Croatia to Norwich, and feature regularly
on Marcus Brigstocke's Early Edition and Robin Ince's Late Night Revolution. As heard on Radio 4's Infinite Monkey Cage and Best Of The Fest.
'A triumph' (Chortle)
'The enthusiasm, avidity and passion of the band radiate well after the gig has
finished' (The List)
'... musical comedy's rising stars' (The Times).
Jonny And The Baptists tour dates

She co-founded Trinity's with Paul L Martin and regularly hosts and performs in cabaret and stand-up venues across London including Jermyn Street, The Old Vic Pit Bar, The Theatre Museum and the Battersea Barge.
'... one of London's Top Ten cabaret performers (Time Out)
'Sarah-Louise Young can sing, act and be funny all at the same time, proving herself a true performer and a force to be reckoned with. Go, sit back and smile' (Three Weeks).
