NEW BOOK OUT NOW!

68 pages long, featuring illustrations of shows such as ACMS, Gein's Family Giftshop, Mark Watson's Festival of Bad Ideas, Amusical and a bunch of solo stand-up hours, performed in 14 different venues across Edinburgh.

"Where is my mind?
In a bustling bar, sorting through a
collection of flyers before queueing
for the fourth show of the day, having
two conversations at once and trying
to retain every face, sight, smell* 
and turn of phrase in some sort of
mental filing cabinet to look over
sometime in the indeterminate future.

This is a collection of illustrations
inspired by everything and everyone
I saw at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017.


*Except that of the Hive. 
I wish I could purge that
particular memory from
my forever tainted nostrils."

BOOKS

Well this is utterly lovely.
— Rachel Parris about "Lisey and Jenby's Bumper Book of Comedy Colouring vol. 1"
The sheer amount of effort that’s gone into this has knocked my socks off.
— Elis James about "The Elis James and John Robins Colouring Experience"
I love this!!!!
— Bec Hill about "Lisey and Jenby's Bumper Book of Comedy Colouring Vol. 1"
It’s like a trip down memory lane...It’s quite disturbing.
— John Robins about "The Elis James and John Robins Colouring Experience"

Illustrator.Comedy enthusiast. Dog owner.

I make illustrated posters and self-published books about comedy festivals. Jenny Grene and I make mildly disturbing colouring books. Chortle and British comedy guide seem to like them (we swear, they read like a four or a five). Some comics have said nice things about our work too, and we remain obnoxiously smug about that.

Oh, and buy stuff from Lisey and Jenby on Etsy so I can keep making more. Or don't, and be known as my mortal enemy forever and ever and ever.*


*I'm deadly serious. OR AM I?

Support Local Live Comedy Zine

DOWNLOAD A FREE COPY HERE (or have one posted to you by clicking on the picture >>> )

"Guys, guys - before you leave, I brought my guitar and I thought maybe we could 'jam' about supporting local comedy, yeah? Cool cool cool."

"Hey gang, so it’s actually really important to support local comedy, yeah? Sweet, let’s do some groovy leafleting."

These are both things you can say to your really cool friends when you show them a copy of this zine, and then force them to photocopy it because you're a cool but intense fan of local comedy. We don't want to charge you for what is essentially the most earnest zine in the world, but bung us a quid (and a bit because of stupid listing fees) and we'll post you one. Alternatively, if you meet Lise at a gig, she'll give you a copy (seriously, just take them from her, spare the rest of the audience).

16 pages, black and white.

The Bumper Book of Comedy Colouring (Vol. 1)

"Lise and Jenny were basking in the glory of their first published colouring book* when inspiration (or desperation to remain cool and relevant) struck. A new colouring book full of all** their favourite comedians! 
This is that book. 
Try and colour within the lines. Or don't you're your own person and you can do what you want, that's cool too. 

*The Elis James and John Robins Colouring Experience. Google it. 
**Most. Well, some. A handful, perhaps. "

This zine features 30 of Lise and Jenny's favourite funny people to colour in, each one with their own individual activity. 
Ever wanted to design flyers, book the guests for QI, or write your own comedy songs? Then this is the book for you! 
Perfect for fans of comedy, colouring, and general whimsy.

 

A Zine About Machynlleth Comedy Festival 2017

"It's the last weekend of April, we've spent most of the day on the train, and now have three days of great shows to see at Machynlleth Comedy Festival. I have documented a handful of these, from what was probably the most joyful weekend of the year."

This is a 28-page zine about Mach fest (or the secret Welsh festival). I've chronicled some of the most memorable moments of the shows this year, including Pappy's Secret Dudes Society and Flatshare Slamdown, James Acaster at the Mach showcase, Austentatious, Sara Pascoe, and many more. 

Before putting the zines through to print, I need to have some idea of numbers, so by purchasing it through this listing you'll help me gauge the interest and speed along the process to get the first run of copies ready to ship off to you. As a thank you for purchasing this and being patient as it goes through the printing process, I will sign and number each copy of the initial print run.

The Elis James And John Robins Colouring Experience

"Resident Illustrators In Chief Jenny Grene and Lise Richardson have combined forces to create this Elis and John colouring book! Now you too can own a piece of the magic they have spread throughout the PCD family for years."
