Rip-roaring, off-the-wall stand-up from one of the silliest people I know. A joyful, angry, thoughtful show about getting older and owning up to who you really are. Celebrating it even. However disastrous that may be. "Hilarious... funny and touching and brilliant" - The Guardian "Mabey is thoroughly enjoyable company... the slightly deranged offspring of a menage a trois be-tween Vic Reeves, Harry Hill and Floella Benjamin" – Evening Standard "A mischievous, kooky talent" - Time Out "An absolute delight to watch... leaves you feeling a little bit dizzy and a big bit happy" - The Skinny...

Starting comedy in 2018 in London, Philipp Kostelecky’s originality, international appeal, and first-class physicality have shot him up the comedy ladder, reaching the final of the 2022 Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year competition and winning Best New Comedian at the 2021 Southend Comedy Festival. Raised by an American-Slovenian mother and absentee Austrian father, Philipp uses his unorthodox cultural background and family structure to pose as an external observer and cultivate an offbeat socio-political perspective. A regular on the UK and European club comedy scene armed with “p...

After starting out in the Brighton comedy scene about the same time, Jade and Sophie have noticed a strange phenomenon going on – people just can’t seem to tell them apart! After being referred to one another multiple times and even tagged as each other in pictures, it’s finally time to settle it once and for all – twins separated at birth or just two besties with the same great sense of style… or so they think....
