Devin Martini never liked singing. In fact, before the age of 14, she never sang a note. Then one day it just happened – and sparks flew – and from that moment on, she never looked back. Following years of high school and college musicals, a stint as the lead trombonist in New York’s premiere Stevie Wonder Cover band, she has, for the past eight years, played with the Berlin-based discopunk collective ITALOPORNO. Since 2011, Devin’s been producing and designing for various new projects, including her own solo progressive pop show, THE BATTLE, a post apocalyptic narrative which is set to kick off in 2014.
Carlo Ritchie hails from the sleepy hollow of Glen Innes, deep in the cold mountain valleys of New England, Australia. He has been a regular on the Sydney Improv scene, and is a member of the two man long-form troop “The Bear Pack”, which has been called “freaking amazing” by David Collins of The Umbilical Brothers. Carlo studied Linguistics at Sydney University and is one of only 44 people in the world to speak the language Wymysorys. He enjoys cooking, sea-shanties and autumn.
Chris Davis is a comedian from Glasgow, Scotland and is a regular performer on the Berlin English-language comedy scene. He has also performed in the US, the UK, and… Belgium. In 2012 and 2013 Chris could be seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and he was recently a finalist in The Scottish Comedian of the Year Award. Broadway Baby has called Chris “A down-to-earth character who embodies everything it means to be a true Scottish comedian” And one4review has said “Davis is entertainment with a capital E!” Chris is also the co-host of Off the Cuff comedy here in Berlin.
