Childish and genius comedy (and trombone-playing)
Childish and genius, that’s how people describe British comedian Faye Treacy, and after reading her life-story we can only agree. This Londoner rebelled against her punk-rock father by learning how to play the trombone, and when life as a professional trombone-player for Rod Stewart (amongst others) got too dull she decided to become a comedian. And once again she proved to be quite good at this: her first solo-show “The Problem with Faye Treacy” got great reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and one of her jokes made it into the top 10-lists of the Evening Standard, The Mirror and The Daily Record.
So we’re dealing with a true multi-talent here, who will entertain a room full of comedy (and trombone) fans with well-crafted jokes. Recommended!

“Bucket full of comedic talent… Original, engaging and clearly comfortable in front of a large audience, Faye is one to watch for the future.” – Lynn Parker CEO Funny Women
“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!” The Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh
