Cute doesn't always make you think of stand up comedy, but Nat Britten and Danni Taylor will make you laugh and want to hug them all at the same time. In their 2012 Comedy Festival show, they have two fresh straight stand up sets about not taking life too seriously.
Their favourite pastimes are procrastination, eating chocolate and writing lists; basically doing anything to avoid all the big life decisions they're being forced to face... Nat is often in cafes asking for marshmallows in her coffee and Danni is usually watching videos of cute kittens on YouTube.
Nat and Danni try to take things seriously, but more often than not, they doodle pictures on their tax return forms and wonder what colour skittles turn when mixed together. The show is about critical choices and trivial endeavours, weighty decisions and meaningful memories, noodles and Tim Tams. The show title is soon to become everyone's new catchphrase, so get on board and start Grabbing Life By the Little Moustache.
Nat Britten is paving her way in the comedy circuit and has just returned from the Melbourne International Comedy Festival which she sums up as an intense comedy marathon after doing in 30 gigs in 3 weeks. She performed as the support act for Australian Comedian Morven Smith, Nat was described as "a very funny girl" by Rhum Magazine: "She's got 10 minutes to warm up the crowd and it's not long before we're already toasty."
Danni performed in the New Zealand Improvisation Festival 2010 and in the Breaking the 5th Wall 2011 comedy festival production of an improvised sitcom, set and performed in Espressoholic Cafe on Cuba St. This festival, she is also in the cast of the Improvised Western The Last Saloon.
