New Act of the Year award winner Bilal joined the company of previous winners such as Stewart Lee, Ardal O’Hanlon, Joe Wilkinson and Linda Smith when he came top of the bill at the 2016 New Act of the Year Awards (previously the Hackney Empire new act of the year award). In 2015 he was the runner up at the Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian of the Year competition. He has appeared on BBC3, Channel 4, Channel 5, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Asian Network, and has written for The Independent and the Guardian. After the prize winning success of CAKES he returned to the fringe in 2017 with a sell out run of his follow-up show; BISCUIT.

One half of Siân &… Zoë, Tomalin is a prolific and perceptive writer and performer in her very own right. She can see funny in the same way that Haley Joel Osment could see dead people. She is our multidimensional conduit to the other side of comedy.
“Wonderfully written, absolutely side-splitting and shot through with very dark humour” ★★★★★ — Bunbury Magazine
“a great piece of alternative comedy” ★★★★ — The Skinny
“unalloyed joy, full of impish verve… compelling work” — Chortle
