Real-life married couple Heleana and Sophia Blackwell grew up with Section 28, late night lesbian films, and a desire to get out of their hometowns.

Sallyann’s brand of humour is wonderfully distinctive and unpredictable; expect real life experiences that aren’t even remotely like real life. Her power to engage an audience is so strong, that she once attracted a large crowd in a public toilet car park because she thought she’d discovered some Roman pottery, after digging with a trowel and convincing the crowd that they were watching a real-life version of Time Team, she had to abandon the dig site and leg it when she realised that all she’d actually dug up was the toilet pipe. Sallyann is Neurodiverse and LGBTQ+ and welcomes everyone to her show.

Dick Denham is a non-binary thirtysomething comedian. A hit with queer and straight crowds alike, Dick has audiences in stitches with their surreal observations on being genderqueer in a heteronormative world, and the aspects of British culture that we all love to be indifferent about normally.
In their debut show Big Dick Energy, Dick takes the banality of everyday life and cleverly - and queerly - subverts it: you'll never experience a branch of Holland & Barrett, a leisure centre café, or a commercial for the People's Postcode Lottery in the same way again!.
