One of our absolute all-time Scratch That faves - we're thrilled to have Twayna back with us at the Ritzy.
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.
Having been marked out by Time Out as a ‘Star of the Future’ Twayne Mayne is a refreshingly original new voice in comedy.
