Comprising of Celeste Dring and Freya Parker, both of whom are supremely talented and very silly performers, they have garnered rave reviews year after year for every show they’ve performed, from their Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated debut ‘Extreme Humans’ to 2018 5 star ‘Forgive Me Mother’.

Their act has been shared internationally as part of the NEW ORDER UK at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and they have been featured on Sketchorama as well as writing and recording two series of East Coast Listening Post for BBC Radio 4 and their own comedy short, the self-titled Lazy Susan for BBC Two and iPlayer.
