Em is an unashamedly brash 33 and 3 quarters year old from Brighton, UK. She lives with her significant other, Daz and their beloved Cat, Wesley Stripes.
Em has been a singer since Opal Fruits, Marathon Bars, Oil of Ulay and White dog poos were all the rage and has performed on stage regularly throughout her life, more often since having her dummy removed by force at the slightly worrying age of 6!
Over the years, her irrepressible desire to mimic, entertain and amuse has left her with an ability to deliver a wide variety of dialogue with comical exuberance and with over thirty accents in her repertoire, Em is sure to entertain (and exasperate) for many years to come!
Sam has been doing impersonations and voices since he was twelve years old. This has served him well as an actor for: stage, film and voice over work. He loves entertaining others with his impressions but also enjoys creating new characters as well!
