The Independent called Rachel Parris Bright Young Thing for comedy in 2014. She was nominated for a Chortle award and was one of the Huffington Post’s Funniest 50 Women on Twitter. She was runner-up in the Funny Women Awards and the Musical Comedy Awards. For a brief time, the word “award” was absorbed into her name. She is a founder member of the award-winning Austentatious. She was Roy’s girlfriend in the recent IT Crowd Special and she presented Game of Thrones fanshow, Thronecast. Fanshow is a word.

Justin Brett is in Showstopper: The Improvised Musical . He has worked recently as Johnny Cash in Million Dollar Quartet (West End). Also at Theatr Clwyd, Ipswich (where he also runs comedy nights) The Globe, Manchester, Leeds, Bath, and Scarborough. TV: Eastenders; Peep Show; Pulling; Dombey & Son; The Queen’s Nose; The Bill; London`s Burning, Ghoul-Lashed; Spooky. Film: War Horse; Gulliver’s Travels; The Fallen; Brothers.

Phil Pellew is one of the stars of the hit impro show Showstopper: The Improvised Musical . (7 years of selling out at the Edinburgh Festival, 4 West End runs, and a BBC Radio 4 series.) He’s been a member of the David Glass Ensemble and the Ninagawa Company and, like Kate Bush and David Bowie, he’s worked with Lindsay Kemp (but unlike that pair of losers, he’s been in a Lindsay Kemp show.) He’s a master of physical theatre, a stuntman and a stage combat specialist. All the things you need in a comedy show.
