Bec Hill and Brydie Lee-Kennedy will be interviewing fellow comedians about their religious thoughts and beliefs and spiritual leanings and other stuff that is maybe too personal to discuss in a public forum but let’s see how it goes.

“Brydie Lee-Kennedy is a time travelling nightmare vision of the future…and a comedian, if you like that sort of thing”- former lover.

She is best known as the writer, director and mermaid of Princess Cabaret and as the slutty half of cabaret duo Sugar & Vice.

Liam Welton

Liam is Director of Game Development at Failbetter Games. If you can tell him what that job title means, you can have it. It’s a sort of Rumplestiltkin deal that way.

Before doing that, he used to run Chaotic Creations, a mixed media design company specialising in web, graphic, audio and video design, during which period he created sound design for a number of different theatre productions in addition to print and web design.
