This is a cool, polished performance from a woman of our time.  I look forward to seeing Twayna on Live at the Apollo and taking on the panel show ‘boys club’ very soon.’

‘If her career progresses as I expect it could, then maybe she will become a role model for future generations.’

★★★★
‘Her boldness is charming. Bringing this show to the white, middle-class audiences of Edinburgh should be precisely what the Fringe is about.’

Twayna Mayne’s distinctive downbeat style paired with her deliciously honest material has taken her to the finals of numerous competitions including the prestigious New Act of the Year & Up the Creek’s One to Watch. In 2016, she became a Leicester Mercury Nominee and starred in the prestigious AAA show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Her highly anticipated debut show Black Girl achieved excellent critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Her extraordinary back story paired with her unique pop culture filtered execution singled her out as a newcomer to watch.

Twayna has also recently appeared on Radio 4 Extra Best of the Edinburgh Fringe, BBC Scotland at the Fringe, BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends and has worked on development projects for Viceland and the BBC.

Having been marked out by Time Out as a ‘Star of the Future’ Twayna Mayne is a refreshingly original new comic voice and most definitely one to watch.
