Funny, funny, funny sketches we haven’t written yet.
Expect the unexpected, if what you don’t expect is off-beat observations, beautiful sketches, witty repartee, startling wigs, intense social commentary and crackling sexual chemistry. If that sounds like what you were expecting, please expect the expected.
Following a short break for a pregnancy, a birth, a worldwide pandemic and a Netflix show, Anna and Emily are back at VAULT Festival to lay some fresh sketches on the comedy table.
As seen on Harry Hill’s Clubnite, BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Asian Network.
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 for a run at 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.
