Their most recent show, “Hot Desk” sold out two years in a row to a capacity audience at one of the Edinburgh Festival’s largest venues, and has since toured all over the world.

Vix Leyton is a Welsh / East London dual citizen endlessly gigging on the comedy circuit.
The comedy equivalent of the Emperors' New Clothes, speaking regularly on how comedy can help you get speaking gigs for your day job when the only speaking gigs she has done are about how comedy helped her land more speaking gigs for her day job. A self fulfilling prophecy of a comedian, proving that if you say it often enough and people say it back then it can become true and she is all over the

Tadiwa Mahlunge is one of comedy's most exciting new acts, already scoring a multitude of awards including winning London and Manchester King Gong in 2018 and 2020, Semifinalist of Amused Moose New Comedian of the Year in 2019 and 2020, winning The Blackout at Up The Creek 2020 and most recently winning Beat The Frog at The Frog and Bucket in February.Not bad, after being told that he wasn't allowed to join the Comedy Society at Lancaster University because he 'did not represent the values of the society'.
Tadiwa was born in Zimbabwe before growing up in Cardiff. After spending his whole life in two colonies, it's a bummer for him to now call London home. When his plans to have a career as a professional physicist were dashed, after he was told he would never make the grades for Oxbridge, his obvious second choice was standup.
Other than standup, Tadiwa loves writing software, football, MMA and World of Warcraft. The thinking man's incel.
