Alice Marshall is a critically acclaimed comedy actress and character comedian, as heard on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra. Her collection of weird and wonderful characters range from the erotic to the grotesque, as she combines her own brand of clowning and story-telling to bring her bizarre creations to life.
Her first solo show Vicious debuted at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe to sold out houses and rave reviews, and was named one of the top 5 shows to see at the Fringe by the International Business Times.
Having performed with the prestigious Edinburgh cast of the world famous NewsRevue in 2014, her acting credits include the title role in the Leicester Square Theatre’s infamous adult panto Sleeping Booty!, Andrew Doyle’s Bobby’s Orgy at The Pleasance, and Eigengrau at The Kings Head Theatre.
Her television work includes Very Important People (E4), The Wives Did It (Discovery), The Jesus Mysteries (National Geographic), and Skins (Channel 4). She has recently filmed a role alongside Doon Mackichan and Francis Magee in the upcoming feature film Winterlong (Nox Films), and is a series regular in the critically acclaimed comedy web series Darren Has A Breakdown.
Nigel grew up in Malaysia, lived in America for five years and moved to the UK in 2015. Having started his comedy career in Chicago, he’s relieved that (most) people in the UK get his jokes too, as evidenced by him winning the prestigious Amused Moose Laugh Off 2016 and being runner up in the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year 2015.
He was also a finalist in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year (2016) and Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year (2015) competitions, and now can be seen performing in comedy clubs across the UK.
Andrea started out on the comedy circuit in late 2009, and within 20 gigs gained second place in a national competition. She’s since performed alongside some of the UK’s best comedians at prestigious comedy clubs all over the UK, been commissioned as a writer for a BBC pilot and was shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum at the New York Television Festival 2012. She was dubbed One to Watch in 2012 by London is Funny, for whom she went on to write a comedy poetry blog in 2012.
In 2013, Andrea and her writing partner Ryan Cull won the prestigious BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Forum competition, beating over 500 other entrants. The writing pair are currently working on a new sitcom as part of a development deal with Objective Productions (makers of Peep Show and Fresh Meat.) She is also producing a book of short plays, and continues to contribute regular interviews and features to The Guardian.
In 2015, Andrea took part in a spoof music video of Taylor Swift's Bad Blood, parodying the notion of tax on female toiletries.
