ELEANOR CONWAY - YOU MAY RECOGNISE ME FROM TINDER
Eleanor suspects she may have intimacy issues. She always has sex on the first date and hasn’t got beyond a third date in over ten years. It’s a shame because she's really good at sex. She’s even crossed a line that many women have probably contemplated crossing on occasion but few have actually done: sex work. You know what they say... 'Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life'. Conway follows up her global smash hit 'Walk of Shame' with a candid look at intimacy, shagging and crossing lines. TMI guaranteed.
An experienced music presenter she’s interviewed everyone from 50 Cent to Justin Bieber and spent her 20’s cavorting round the world for Ministry of Sound and Virgin Music. Her self produced debut show tour for ‘Walk of Shame’, detailing her battle with addiction, sold out dates in over 10 countries on a multi-award winning 100 date tour. An advocate for drug and alcohol rehabilitation in 2018 she hosted Kaleidoscope’s 50th celebration at the House of Lords as well as writing about her experiences dating in sobriety for The Guardian and guesting on BBC’s Woman’s Hour. You may also recognise her from Talk Radio, Sky News, The Mirror and Daily Express.

Daliso Chaponda - Blah Blah Blacklist
Daliso Chaponda shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent making it to the final of the 2017 series, establishing himself as a favourite with the judges and the British public.
He’s now a YouTube star amassing over 100 million views of his performances and his BBC Radio 4 show Citizen of Nowhere drew accolades.
In his new one man show, Daliso looks at disgraced and blacklisted celebrities and historical figures we're ashamed we once admired. Plus, there's also the small matter of family member arrests and exploding buildings in his home country. The enterprising Malawian who tried to blackmail Daliso also gets a mention. Blah Blah Blacklist is the daring new show from the writer of 'What the African Said' and 'Don't Let Them Deport Me'
