As a comedian, Roo’s oeuvre is having absolutely no self esteem, which allows them to mine any embarrassing or traumatic event in their life for laughs.“Roo handles dark subjects in a terrifyingly upbeat yet wonderfully charming manner” – Blizzard Comedy

A combination of Dad Jokes and Daddy Issues, Bobbie-Ann Jones is one of the funniest prediabetic queers ever to come from Wolverhampton. She once made her counsellor cry and laugh at the same time, and she’s still proud of it. Is often seen carrying a single chocolate bar in a Sainsburys bag for life and rocking a killer rack.
And featuring special guest host UMBY WINTERS
Life tourist, trans rights advocate and insufferable socialist, Umby Winters is a fan of words and the colour pink. Between Twitch streaming and stand up comedy, they’ve created a lot of cool content and when they came to Blizzard live they inspired a literal fuck-monster.
“Umby Winters is so good at stand up it makes me fucking furious.” – Hannah Platt
