Sought after for her on point satirical views Jay Lafferty has become a regular face on BBC Scotland’s television channel. It was a performance on BBC’s Breaking The News that saw Lafferty hit the front page of The New York Times for her on point description of Theresa May’s catastrophic handling of the Brexit deal. Her Edinburgh Fringe 2019 hit solo show Jay Lafferty: Jammy was made into a BBC Radio Scotland three part series – Jay’s Jammy. During the pandemic alongside the rest of the world Jay took her work online performing comedy all over the world from the comfort of her living room while continuing to be a regular voice on BBC Breaking The News.
Joshua won So You think You’re Funny? in 2022 and since then has gained attention both on stage and online. He also won the King Gong at the Comedy Store London, and was a finalist at BBC New Comedian Awards 2022 . In 2023 he was nominated for best newcomer in the Chortle comedy awards and will be performing at the Gilded Balloon during the Fringe in August 2023.
