“Best described as ‘darkness wrapped in glitter’ as she delivers some brutal jokes with a disarming smile” - Chortle

*Mel Owen
An Aberystwyth girl dubbed “Wales’ most exciting new act” (Clwb Comedy) with “pin-sharp writing” (Stand Up For Comedy). She has won stand-up competitions across the UK, including at Bristol Comedy Chest, Comedy Smash in Liverpool and the highly acclaimed Comedy Virgins competition for new acts in London.
In 2022, Melanie joined the presenting team on S4C’s Ffermio. She created Mel Mal Jal, one of Wales’s most popular podcasts which has gone on to be commissioned by BBC Sounds.

“She has the appealing air of not quite being of this world, but whatever planet she’s from, they know funny.” Chortle

*Bella Humphries
Bella is a comedian, actor and dungaree wearer.
Come watch her “ooze charm in a cheeky sort of way” as she recounts tales of moving to Wales and asking the age old question..who exactly am I?
As heard on BBC Radio Wales and BBC Sounds.
“Bella is in many ways the comedian who misogynistic boomer men fear – full of confidence, not afraid to broach graphic content, and wittier than any of them could ever be.” Blizzard Comedy
