The terrifying two-headed host beast that isΒ Maddy Grant and Jay RΓ³bert.

She has co-produced and co-written three shows (Sometimes I Say Your Name Out Loud, Dwell and Resting Bitch Face), and performed as a solo artist (The Floor is Lava, Flatpack, Airport, Spanx for the Memories, Niflhel, andΒ Nautical but Nice).Β 

Maddy has also performed as anΒ MC (Over the Back Fence, Insert Audience Here, and Raise the Roof) an ensemble performer (Inertia, Cirquetry, Rear Vision), and in duo and trio clowning and acrobatic works (Picnic, Earnest on Holiday, Bread! The Edible Plate) at festivals and Cabarets since 2014.
