He supported Simon Amstell (Carnage) on tour in 2018 and his Edinburgh 2018 show Juice was a critical and commercial success, performing to sell-out audiences

and receiving a plethora of 4 and 5 star reviews for his ‘thirst-quenching joy-ride of a stand up set’.



EGG, the UK’s answer to Broad City’s Ilana and Abbi are a new and exciting comedy double act comprising of Anna Leong Brophy and Emily Lloyd-Saini.

They made their official debut with Richard Pictures in 2018, which enjoyed sold out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and transfers to London’s Soho Theatre in Spring 2019.
