It’s 2018, and casual threats of nuclear warfare echo through the electrical inferno of social media. We feel utterly powerless and so habitually betrayed by the powerful that we are left with seemingly no alternative but to digest an ever expanding library of televisual entertainment until armageddon finally encapsulates us in body as well as soul. Meanwhile statistics tell us life is better than ever for humankind, and we can only wonder if that’s why we should have paid attention in maths: for the unfathomable luxury of arriving at contentment by statistical calculation. Anyway, to celebrate our happy new year, you simply must get out of the house for some in-the-flesh entertainment. Below is another line-up we’re dead chuffed to deliver to you.
A former comedy reviewer who first tried stand-up after the magazine she worked for suggested she write an article where she ‘faked it’ as a comedian, Brady proved so convincing she decided to carry on. After reaching the finals of a few prestigious comedy awards, she eventually quit her day job working with male ex-convicts after being selected to appear on Stewart Lee’s The Alternative Comedy Experience. She has appeared on a number of other TV shows including 8 out of 10 Cats, Sean Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, The Russell Howard Hour, and The One Show. She has also contributed pieces to The Guardian and appeared on Newsnight. She created her own brilliantly autobiographical BBC pilot, Radges, and more recently featured in Viceland’s Brexit Stage Left. She has sold out critically acclaimed runs at the fringe with her solo shows People Are Idiots, Male Comedienne and, most recently, Suffer Fools, which she is currently touring around the UK. In addition to all of this, she is wickedly funny, searingly intelligent and unreservedly authentic.

Siân & Zoë
A technicolour sketch hazard mesmerically assorted with absurd daftness, occasional liquorice, soul-delving dreamscapes, space-time discontinuity, horrific whimsy and a cornucopia of characterisation. Siân and Zoë are an utterly inventive double-act prone to darkly alternative comedic visions. They have performed sketches on BBC Radio 1, written for Channel 4, been seen on BBC2 and CITV, and completed two majestic runs at the Edinburgh fringe with Luxury Cruise Through the Horrifying Vacuum of Space and Sugar Coma Fever Nightmare. They are coming to Sheffield exclusively to harvest your soul.
