Three of the UKs top sketch performers
Daphne: Edinburgh Best Newcomer Nominee and SketchFest Best New Act 2015, Daphne, are Phil Wang, Jason Forbes and George Fouracres. The group has appeared in various incarnations on Channel 4; BBCs One, Two and Three; and BBC Radio 4. Witness the wise wit of Wang, the flawless physicality of Forbes, and also George, in the group’s premiere hour. ★★★★★ – Londonist ★★★★☆ – The Guardian ★★★★☆ – The Telegraph ★★★★☆ – The Independent ★★★★☆ – The List THE LIST ★★★★☆ – The Skinny ★★★★☆ – The Scotsman ★★★★☆ – Chortle Toby: Beautifully dark and highly original sketch comedy from real life sisters Sarah and Lizzie Daykin. Sarah is childlike, troubled and suffering from delusions of grandeur. Winner of the Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar School Theatre Prize 2003. Lizzie is gifted, loyal and suffering at the hands of her sister Sarah. Just enjoys the taking part. Both are still waiting for their luck to change. ★★★★★ – Fest ★★★★☆ – The Guardian ★★★★☆ – Independent ★★★★☆ – Chortle Bucket: Ed Eales-White and Jon Pointing are something of a comedy odd couple, Eales-White being a sketch semi-veteran formerly in Clever Peter, and Pointing a baby-faced rookie. However, they’ve hit the ground running as double-act Bucket, and their stripped-back hour of sketches leans heavily on their dysfunctional relationship. They’ve appeared together in the BBC miniseries The Life Guru, but onstage their partnership really shines, parodying improv comedy and physical theatre, and creating characters who are reminiscent of Channel 4 stars Cardinal Burns. ★★★★★ – ThreeWeeks ★★★★☆ – Chortle Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
"An eye-catching debut."
