EGG, a new and exciting comedy double act made up of Anna Leong-Brophy and Emily Lloyd-Saini. After improvising together in award winning improv troupe ‘BattleActs!’ for over 5 years, they made the leap into sketch comedy together as EGG. Their first live show, ‘EGG: Static’ debuted at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 receiving positive reviews from both audience and critics.

Both would say the high point of feedback was when an audience member had a punchline from a popular sketch tattooed on to his arm 3 months later. True story. (Photo available on request.)

Reassured by this love, the pair are currently in the process of writing their follow up show which they hope to be ready for Ed Fringe 2018. Online sketches are posted in our ‘Stuff We’ve Done page’
