‘Laidback, on-the-nose material, chopping down fools of all colours, both in day-to-day life and in the media’ – The Guardian
Former Chortle Student Comedian of the Year as seen on ‘Mock The Week’, ‘The World Stands Up’, ‘FHM Stand Up Hero’, ‘Russell Howard’s Good News’, ‘Little Miss Joycelyn’, ‘Comedy Cuts’ and his own sketch show on Comedy Central (which earned him a Hotshot award from Broadcast magazine for his writing). All this plus a 6 part radio 4 show ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’. He’s instantly likeable, charismatic and an incredibly slick performer with a natural stage presence.
‘A stylish comedian with a sonic imagination and a twinkle in his eye’ – Noel Fielding
As seen on ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ and ‘Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy’ Joey’s swirling surrealism is a welcome antidote to the woes of the world, creating a cast of uniquely offbeat characters and tall tales of infinite comedic fancy.
‘Low-key Penella Mellor, with a dark-edged set full of distain for her daughter. Yet it never seems nasty, more a wry confessional about her own lack of maternal instinct. Such unflinching approach to the ‘bad mum’ persona is admirable, and she delivers with an appealing coolness … top comic in waiting’ – Chortle
Winner of Beat the Frog World Series 2013 and Nando’s New Comedian of the Year 2013.
Penella Mellor is not a good grown up. Raised on the mean streets of Oldham, shunned by her neighbours for her anti-social behaviour, she should have grown up fast. Instead she struggles daily with all aspects of adulthood: parenting, working, texting, dating, being nice to other people. She also knows something about Winnie The Pooh that’ll make your ears bleed.
Refreshingly original and more colourful than a delux colour chart, Dotty has a talent for finding hilarity in otherwise sombre situations. Fan of fancy words, purveyor of wrongness, Funny Women Finalist 2013.
