Crybabies are the comedic union of Michael Clarke, James Gault, and Ed Jones. Their unique blend of absurdist, narrative driven sketch comedy earned them a nomination for Best Newcomer at the 2019 Edinburgh Comedy Awards. The trio's debut show Danger Brigade was one of the break out hits of the festival, receiving rave reviews and selling out its run. As individual performers, the three have reached the final of numerous comedy competitions, worked on various projects with BBC Comedy, and acted alongside the likes of Martin Freeman and Saoirse Ronan.
