Lily Hyde and Alissa Anne Jeun Yi: Gentlemen, Please!
Soho Theatre Young Company alumni and (future) BAFTA winners Alissa and Lily present a brand-new split bill of foul-mouthed smut and highbrow satire. Suitors heavily discouraged.
Lily and Alissa met on the Soho Theatre Stand-Up Lab in 2018 and quickly bonded over their love of expensive candles and the fact that they were both complex, three-dimensional women. Lily was blinded by Alissa’s silky Asian garms and exquisite taste in eyewear, and Alissa still remains strangely aroused by Lily’s extensive knowledge of 17th-century French history. After a whirlwind friendship and poor financial advice, they’ve found themselves in Edinburgh with a show.
