Victoria Olsina

So far she has only stolen the title of Semifinalist iFunny Women & 2Northdown 2020. Her comedy style is a dry dark mix of observation and storytelling. She is also the producer and co-founder of Clandestina: a wxmen led queer comedy night.

Andy Field

TV appearances include BBC Presents: Stand Up For Live Comedy (BBC 1 & BBC 3), The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Pie and a Pint (Comedy Central), Sunday Football Roast (Facebook Live) and As Yet Untitled (Dave).
A regular at festivals such as Latitude, Download, Bestival, Leefest and Secret Garden Party, Andy is fast becoming a familiar face at top comedy clubs around the country. He has hosted his own webseries In The Tub, in which he interviewed up-and-coming bands in the bath (of course). He has a Masters in Creative Writing from Brunel.
He is currently rehearsing with his new sketch troupe, and focusing on developing a number of projects for TV.

Farhan Solo
Farhan started comedy in late 2019 and has already started making waves in London’s open mics. He was also a finalist in So you think you’re funny? 2021.
He skilfully navigates universally relatable topics such as race, religion, politics, family and dating - all through the eyes of an eccentric millennial Muslim.
