Daniel Carter-Hope (Performer)
Dan use to sell barbecued cheese for a living. He was crap at that too. The rest of the cast think he’s a bit weird and have already resolved not to stay in touch when the run is over. His favourite colour is red.

Tash Banks (Performer)
While at Cambridge Tash did a lot of Drama in order to distract attention from the poor quality of her academic work. At drama school Tash did a lot of reading to pull focus from her poor performances. Now she’s in NewsRevue she has run out of ways to hide her deficiencies. Try to look at the shiny things when she’s on stage. Most recently Tash has been in Brecht’s Fear and Misery of the Third Reich and a devised piece, The Lost Ones.
