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.

'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).

His relationship with the Beeb goes back to his performance at the Edinburgh Festival in 2001 as part of Screaming Blue Murder's Big Value Show and as a finalist in the televised BBC New Comedy Awards 2001. He was nominated for the NZ Comedy Guild Award as Best International Artist 2014.
'The crowd fell for his dry, witty, confused little boy mutt-schtick in a big way' (The Observer)
'Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy' (The List)

'... already on his way up...' (Time Out)
'Second to none' (Adelaide Advertiser)
'Infectious, likeable and popular... A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny' (The Stage).

His confidence and ability to easily engage with the audience has earned him a number of compering residencies, including Get Up Stand Up in London and Therapy Rooms Comedy Club in Tunbridge Wells.
'Inherently funny: voice of an angel' body of a trucker... very neat lines in his comic repertoire' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'... the next big thing’(FHM)
'There's no doubt about it; Lloyd Griffith is the king of the unexpected. His sense of fun is infectious, his singing voice faultless and his anecdotes are told with boundless confidence. Griffith has clearly established his own style of comedy' (Three Weeks).
