EGG is an 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’ received positive reviews from both audience and critics at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016. Their official debut, Richard Pictures, produced by Berk’s Nest and directed by Phoebe Bourke, enjoyed sold out shows at the Fringe in 2018, graced the cover of Fest magazine and subsequently transferred to the Soho Theatre. In 2019 they were returning guests on Channel 4’s Harry Hill’s Clubnite. In 2021 their BBC Radio 4 Comedy Special, Scrambled EGG,  was made Comedy of the Week. EGG also host the podcast Still Legit, where they gleefully examine the films and TV shows they grew up with and ask if they’re still legit today.

EGG are also writers – Their first TV script was nominated for a BAFTA Rocliffe award in 2018. As well as writing as individuals – Anna for the Aardman series Lloyd of The Flies airing in Sept 2022, Emily for Mawaan Rizwaan’s BBC show ‘Juice’, filming in 2023 – as a team they have written for  BBC’s ‘Class Dismissed’ and currently have a script in Development with Kudos.
