Rebecca C.

Award winning, multi-lingual... comedian Rebecca and Joe her 18th century cello, must be one of the world’s most unusual double-acts. Together they perform spoofs of everything from Pop to Opera and Jazz to Bollywood. She has been described as a Victor Borge of the 21st Century! Performing her show in English, French, German and Italian has also led to comparisons with Eddie Izzard!

A classically trained cellist, Rebecca won a scholarship to study at The Royal Northern College of Music and completed a Masters of Music at Rice University in Houston, USA. She has performed with many leading orchestras including the London Symphony, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Philharmonia , the BBC Symphony Orchestras and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. It was whilst studying music in the U.S. that Rebecca first became involved in the comedy/cabaret scene. She soon began performing in comedy clubs across the U.S., including The New York Comedy Club and The Comedy Store, LA. In 1996 she won the university MASTERCARD TALENT SEARCH. She went on to perform her comedy act on CBS and NBC television and performed her own Solo Show on NPR (National Public) Radio.

In 2007 she created the double act, together with her husband Colin.
