Richard Todd

… An inventive comic thinker,
with surrealism that creates weird imagery with robust, if unlikely, internal logic. He delivers with the passion of an insane preacher, and there’s a keen off-the-wall wit throughout…’
Steve Bennet, Chortle​

‘… A smart surrealist…’
The Independent

‘Richard Todd is a funny funny man. A Properly talented comic’
Kate Copstick

​’Constructing complex, bewilderingly intricate sentences from the far reaches of a vast vocabulary, he occasionally calls to mind a persecuted Daniel Kitson, or an intelligent Russell Brand. Ultimately though, Todd emerges as a talent entirely of his own. The left-field subject matter he tackles is rooted in the everyday, and we identify with him for all his wildly eccentric thoughts and behaviour.’
Lewis Porteous, Fest

‘flashes of brilliance with complex, imaginative surrealism and an endearingly chaotic style’
The Skinny

Hatty Ashdown

“innate funny bones”- Chortle

One to watch- radar – Independent

‘Anecdotal humor that never feels stilted or scripted ..makes Ashdown one to watch on the comedy scene’    **** Three weeks

Hatty Ashdown : Nan Child -list Magazine Top 5 Free fringe show
‘Wonderfully inventive, consistently funny’    Time Out
‘Warm, infectiously funny and brilliant’  Josie Long

‘Indie load mouth’ London is Funny
‘Hatty Ashdown’s brain is made up of funny molecules. She makes me laugh. And laugh. And then laugh’ –Robert Popper (Writer Channel 4’s Friday Night Dinner).
