'Britney' is the true story of what happens to two best friends when one of them gets a brain tumour.

Recommended by The Guardian, London Evening Standard and Time Out, Britney is the debut show from Funny Women Regional Finalists (2018) Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson. As hilarious as it is moving, it has already had sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and VAULT Festivals and the Battersea Arts Centre in 2018.

‘The pair reminded me of a modern-day French and Saunders.’

Charly is currently playing the lead role of Marnie in Channel 4’s “must-see” 6 x 45’ comedy-drama series Pure, giving what Digital Spy describe as a “star-making performance”. Ellen Robertson was recently seen in triple Olivier Award winner Mike Bartlett’s latest play, Snowflake, which received rave reviews: “Ellen Robertson puts in a late, touching appearance as Maya.” ★★★★ – Guardian. Ellen and Charly are working on new live material and are developing a scripted television project with Pure producers Drama Republic.


Britney is a show with a lot of heart. And a brain tumour.
