Matt Rees - Multi-award-winning Welsh comedian, Matt Rees, has generated a huge buzz on the circuit over the past few years with his unique brand of well-crafted gags and acerbic delivery earning him high praise from audiences and critics alike.

The deadpan stand-up is a sober drunk and a couple of years ago he had to take a break from comedy to deal with his personal matters, but now he’s back and taking the comedy scene by storm once more. As well as starring in BBC3’s This Country and BBC’s Edinburgh Fringe Highlights, Matt has also recently recorded an episode of BBC2’s Stand Up at BBC Wales, Amazon’s Audible Presents and Stand Up For BBC Radio Wales.

Saskia Preston - Saskia has made a name for herself as an act who delivers up offbeat one liners and observations in a unique and playful style. A finalist in the Max Turner Comedy Award, Funny Women Award and Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian competition, Saskia was also shortlisted for the BBC New Comedy Award broadcast on BBC Radio 4 extra as well as the Laughing Horse New Comedian of the Year Final. 

Writer for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and The News Quiz, as well as BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack, Saskia has performed at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival every year since 2013 in various mixed billed shows. Last year, she was part of the prestigious showcase, AAA Stand Up Late show at The Pleasance, and now excitingly, for this coming Edfringe, Saskia will be bringing her characteristic quick wit and hilarious delivery for her debut solo show.
