BRITNEY are a sketch duo made up of Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson, who are currently developing a scripted television project for Channel 4 with Drama Republic. 

Britney took their debut show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and then VAULT Festival in London, where it was recommended by The Guardian, London Evening Standard and Time Out. The show then had two sell-out runs at the Battersea Arts Centre before transferring to Soho Theatre in early 2019 for another sell-out run.

Praise for BRITNEY:

​"Hysterical... Britney have mastered a unique style of multi-format storytelling" ★★★★★ Fringe Biscuit

“I have never been so moved by a Fringe performance before. Britney touched me in ways no comedy show has”, ★★★★★ Edin Blogger

​"Taking a wholly unfunny subject and turning it in to a comedy cannot possibly be an easy task, but that’s exactly what Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson have done with Britney. Not only that, they’ve done it incredibly well... Britney is laugh-out-loud funny and told with love", ★★★★★ Theatre Weekly

​"At once comforting as it is side-splittingly funny" ★★★★ EdFringeReview

"Performed with great invention and verve . . . We will be seeing a lot of more of them both, I'm sure."★★★★ The Arts Desk

​"Heart-achingly funny", Funny Women

​"The pair reminded me of a modern-day French and Saunders", A Younger Theatre

"I loved Britney. Moving, funny, wonderfully performed and tremendously well written... Honestly brilliant and should have their own TV series", Mike Bartlett, playwright
