About the company

General Erection

Lolly and Liam met on a date. They didn't fancy each other so they wrote some sweet comedy together instead.

Lolly's previous show Orwell that Ends Well played at Vault in 2017 and was nominated as one of the Top Ten shows of 2017 in the Funny Women awards. She was runner up in Burlesque Idol 2018 for her cabaret version of Theresa May and was a finalist in Infinitease 2018 for her Melania Trump burlesque act.

Her Edinburgh show Fifty Shades of May also featured Liam as Gerry Adams and Jacob Rees-Mogg. It sold out its run at Assembly, Edinburgh Fringe 2018.

Liam Hourican is an impressionist and comedian who wrote and performed his own Channel 4 Comedy Lab iCandy and has appeared on numerous sketch shows, including Channel 4’s Very Important People, RTE”s The Savage Eye, and BBC One’s Tracey Breaks the News. He is a series regular on the cult hit Murder in Succesville, where he plays Gordon Ramsay.
