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 sell out shows and critical acclaim for 2018's Richard Pictures, Anna and Emily are back at VAULT Festival to lay some fresh sketches on the comedy table.
As seen on BBC, ITV and Channel 4 and heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Asian Network.
EGG are 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 several years, they stopped procrastinating and made the leap into sketch comedy together as EGG. Their first live show, ‘EGG: Static’ was nominated for a Funny Women award at 2016's Edinburgh Fringe. Their official debut, Richard Pictures, enjoyed sold out shows and critical acclaim at the Fringe in 2018, and was produced by Berk’s Nest and directed by Phoebe Bourke.
