"Genuine, uncontrived epiphanies as well as laughs" - Chortle
As a child of 8, Chris went to the dentist and something weird happened, something which led Chris (now a child of 33) to consider the possibility that past and present exist simultaneously.

A stand-up show about time, space, love, reality and teeth.

"One impressive comic" New Statesman.

“Excellent... Full of interesting ideas ⋆⋆⋆⋆ “ – The Mirror

“Very funny, well crafted stand-up ⋆⋆⋆⋆ “ – Broadway Baby

Debut hour (Best Newcomer Musical Comedy Awards 2015) Faye worries a lot. When asked by her little sister for some career advice, Faye realised she’d spent the last half of her 20’s trying to make trombone comedy work. Join Faye for a idiosyncratic underscored tale about a S. London Foster Family and why she’s decided she wants to become a Step Dad. “Treacy’s charm soon wins us round… her one-liners are expertly crafted and sharp” (The List)

‘Rebellion of classical music against punk dad. Vibrant and lively.. She belongs on stage clearly.. Somehow a little of the Victoria Wood in her. Huge response!’ (Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh)
