A showcase of funny, delightful and quirky characters and comediansAnne and Lynsey aren’t themselves’ is a super-sized party platter of the tip top comedians trying out brand new characters, familiar friends and material. It’ll be like a party but you won’t have to make any small talk, we’ll do all of that.
Anne Zander wants to prove that she’s more than just a sobbing face (casting directors take note!).
Lynsey Bonell wants you to know she’s totally over the 2011 break-up of her sketch group Panda Smackdown.
This month they bring you:
Lola-Rose Maxwell (BBC Radio 4, Dawson Bros): The voice of numerous characters on BBC Radio 4's 'The Adventures of Mr Brown', SOAP podcast 'The Dawson Bro's Sketch Comedy' and countless children's audiobooks, Lola-Rose is a prolific performer. She appears corporeally as an improviser with 'London super-group' (TimeOut) The Petting Zoo and is a house performer at The FA. After almost a year's hiatus from solo work, Lola-Rose is back with a new take on character comedy that will make you question who she really is.
Verona Rose (BBC 1, Channel 4): Actress and rising comedic star Verona has been seen as Alexandria in BBC Doctors and Hairdresser Vee in Eastenders. She is the co-creator/-star of the All 4 show 'Girls Go Trolling', and before she started acting she was a rapper, appearing as a finalist on BBC 1’s Urban flava and winning the Homegrown cuts on BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Alice Fraser (BBC Radio 4, Radio National, FBI Radio, Channel 10), an award winning writer, broadcaster, performer and comedian. Alice does reliably silly, unpredictably meaningful, narratively unorthodox, gut-punch comedy. Alice has toured the world with her critically acclaimed solo shows The Resistance and Savage. Both received four and five start reviews and packed out houses in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, New Zealand, London and the Edinburgh Fringe.
It’ll be a night of firsts, fun and foot tapping*
