Sandra, Sian & Jenan
About Sandra Hale
Sandra is a stand-up comedian, observational and self deprecating. She has been a professional actor for over 45 years working with some comedy greats such as Sidney James, Charles Hawtrey, Clive Dunn, John Inman to name a few.
Yes, she’s well aware they're all dead!! Could be one of the reasons why the work seems to have dried up (rather like her) and that's why she decided to make a change and try her hand at stand up comedy. So at the age of 61 in December 2013!!! she took the plunge and hasn't looked back!
She is an ex wife, mother, grandmother, good friend, great cook, insomniac, loves Lindor chocolate (probably explains the insomnia), hates marzipan.

About Jenan Younis
Jenan is a weapon of mass hilarity!
How much more foreign can you get being half Iraqi and half Palestinian? Being born and raised in Surrey... Fancy a slap in the face tackling all the big comedic issues? Don't sit within arms reach!
Culturally inappropriate, politically unacceptable and explosively funny. "Smart, hip, smart comedian - not to be missed!"
