Jaleelah Galbraith is a Bristol based stand up. Jaleelah is currently writing her third full length show Fraudian Slip which she hopes to debut this year. Her first show was ‘It is a Truth’ (2018) and her second ‘Age Fright; 35 and Counting’ (2019), she performed both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as in Bristol and London. She is anecdotal, loves a good story and is very sarcastic!

Kirsten McPake is a wee gay, autobiographical artist based in Glasgow. She uses comedy to interrogate and cringe at her life. She recently got a masters in performance during a global pandemic and is now starting to panic. YouTube / Website / Twitter
Maeve Boffey started comedy during the lockdown to stave off the madness. She's found a natural talent in laughing at her own life and invites you to laugh along too. Twitter / Insta
Pauline Vallance is a singer/songwriter and clarsach player from Ayrshire. In usual circumstances, she travels the world looking for unusual venues to play in - from extinct volcanoes to grand castle halls. In these Lockdown times, she has been mainly performing One Song to the Tune of Another, in honour of the late Tim Brooke-Taylor. She has been described as "My favourite cognitive dissonance", "Living proof of the fine line between genius and insanity" and (her personal favourite) - "Laughed so hard I upset the dog". She will be bringing out two albums of more serious songs this year and is hoping to appear again at the Edinburgh Fringe with her one woman show 'What the Brontes Did at the Fringe'.
