@AdaCampe

Ada Campe’s act is a unique blend of comedy, magic, regret and shouting. A devotee of variety, dressing up and the absurd, she has been delighting audiences at cabaret and comedy nights across the UK for years, including Stand Up for Women! at the Garrick Theatre and Wilton’s Music Hall, Femmes by the Thames at the RVT, What The Frock! Comedy in Bristol and most recently the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. She is also featured in two of the most recent books about women in comedy - the What The Frock! Book of Funny Women (2015) and Stand Up & Sock it to Them Sister (2016). But it’s not all about the glamour of the big time… through her regular appearances in Scary Little Girls’ Christmas Cabaret tours, Ada Campe has discovered that she is also very big in the villages of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Leicestershire. Verging on huge, actually. 

'Resembles an unhinged supervillain’ (Diva Magazine). ‘Very, very funny’ (Edinburgh Magic Circle). ‘I love the whole concept’ (Funny Women). ‘Talented and funny... Look out drag queens, the dowager duchess is in da house’ (Kate Copstick).

@callybeaton

Cally is a natural storyteller full of intelligent, distinctive and punchline-rich material. Her act is a rollercoaster ride of anecdotes, observations and stuff even your best mate wouldn’t admit to.

She is London-based and performs in major venues across the UK, as well as regularly appearing on the New York circuit. Her Finalist credits include: Fresh Comedy Knights 2016, Max Turner Prize 2016, Bath Comedy Festival 2016, Gotham Comedy New Talent New York 2015, Golden Jester 2015 & Comedy Cafe New Act 2015.

Cally took her first show, Cat Call, to Edinburgh this year with her comedy partner Catherine Bohart (BBC New Comedy Award & Funny Women Finalist 2016) where together they enjoyed 4**** reviews, sell-out rooms and received a Malcolm Hardee Award; they will be touring the show around the UK and Ireland over autumn 2016/early 2017.

She relishes engaging with live audiences and turning gender stereotypes on their head. She is awesomely funny. And modest too.
