Biographies

Rebecca Carrington

is a classically trained Cellist & Singer, who won a scholarship to the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, UK and to Rice University in Houston, USA, where she completed a Master of Music. Whilst in the USA, Rebecca discovered Stand Up Comedy and decided to combine it with her Vocal and Cello talents. She soon began performing in clubs like the New York Comedy Club or the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

In the UK she played with most of the leading Orchestras including The London Symphony, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, the BBC Symphony and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. It was during this time that Conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Claudio Abbado & Neemi Järvi, encouraged her to spring out of the Orchestra and on to the Stage!

As a freelance cellist she also recorded on such film sound tracks as “Lord of the Rings”, “Harry Potter” and “Hannibal.” She also performed at the “BRITS 2006” with Kanye West and has performed and recorded with various Pop Artists such as Jill Scott, David Byrne, Paul Mcartney and Aretha Franklin.

After selling out at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004 & 2005 Rebecca became a Full Time Music Comedian taking her One Woman Show all over Europe before she developed the Duo Carrington-Brown with her Husband, Colin Brown.

Colin Brown

is an Actor & Singer, who has over the last 23 years performed on Stage, TV & Radio in diverse genres. From Musical Theatre in London’s West End to the Royal Shakespeare Company. TV credits include, “The Bill”, “”Trial and Retribution,” “The Knock” & “Eastenders”. As a Voice Over Artist he most notably voiced the TV Advertising Campaign celebrating Bob Marley’s ground breaking Album “Exodus,” 30 Year Anniversary.

He was also a member of the cult A Cappella group “The Magnets” for over 10 years. He later went on to join Robbie Williams’ 2006 “Close Encounters” World Tour as a backing vocalist. In 2007 he formed the Music & Comedy Duo, “Carrington-Brown” with his wife, Rebecca Carrington.

In addition Colin regularly coaches various A Cappella groups and was choreographer and performance coach for the “Viva Voce” Programme, “Commando A Cappella.”

Joe

is Rebecca’s multi-faceted 18th century cello. Rebecca discovered him at her grand mothers home and has been in love with him ever since. Over time he has become his own personality and as part of the Trio (Threesome) he always has an important role in life and on stage, too.

A magnificent show that is in addition long-overdue to a comedy scene swamped with uniformity.
