Date: Saturday 6 July 2019

Spencer Jones is a comedian, actor and writer who has been nominated for both the Edinburgh Comedy Award and a BAFTA. You may have seen him in regular appearances as William Kempe in BBC 2's Upstart Crow.  He was co-creator and co-star of the BAFTA-nominated CBBC comedy Big Babies.  Spencer won the 2016 Broadcast Digital Award for Best Scripted Online Short for his ten minute short Spencer Jones Christmas.

Spencer recently wrote and starred in the BBC Comedy Short, The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk, which has received rave reviews. Other TV includes Live At The Apollo, Live From The BBC and Still Open All Hours.
His 2017 show THE AUDITION was nominated for best show at the Edinburgh Comedy Award and received glowing reviews.

"An excellent performer, a professional clown. A real master of physical comedy and clowning."... Broadway Baby
" With his adorable character and surprises from beginning to end, Jones is, without a doubt, a "must-see"....Comedy Reviewer

Sarah Keyworth's material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.  Last year Sarah was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Festival and won the Pleasance Theatre Best Newcomer award.  Her show was also a Herald Angel Award.

“Powerful, poignant and achingly funny stuff.”...Herald Scotland
“Utterly engaging"...The Telegraph
