Double bill of work-in-progress shows from two most prolific and exciting comedians.

Bec Hill is an Australian-born-London-based comedian, presenter and fool. She is best known for her Twitter presence, her "live animations" on YouTube, and her recent stint co-hosting Sky's DC Fancast. John Barrowman once kissed her on the lips and it confused her.

"Bec Hill: exuberant, daft and inventive." **** The Scotsman
"There's something special about Bec Hill." **** The Times

Sarah Bennetto is a stand-up from Melbourne, now based in London. You can catch her doing new solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe every year, music festivals, comedy clubs, and she can also be heard on BBC Radio 4, Glastonbury backstage radio and NTS's Mix-Tape. She is the host of Storytellers' Club, the cult comedians-telling-stories comedy club.

"Self-depreciating, dark, honest and genuinely funny. One of the most enjoyable and original shows Iíve seen this year. It had me laughing out loud more times than I could count." ****Ĺ The Advertiser newspaper, Adelaide
"A sophisticated mix of standup and character comedy, Bennetto succeeds in harnessing the full power of an instinctive comedic mind." **** Fest magazine, Edinburgh
"Superb. Devastating. Edges towards perfection." **** ThreeWeeks, UK
