ERWYD LE FOL
Erwyd (real name Russel Erwood) is co-founder of the North Wales Burlesque & Cabaret Festival.
He's also the official jester of Conwy Town. Has been a professional juggler, magician, and comedian for more than a decade; and he's also one half of the comedy magic act Erwyd & Gatling.
Over the years Erwyd has worked as a magic consultant for TV shows and fellow performers, worked with the likes of Sir Terry Wogan and Eamonn Holmes OBE, and has worked his act all over the UK and beyond.
Foxee Stole (aka Kim Edmunds) came up with the idea of hosting a burlesque and cabaret festival in North Wales back in August 2014 as a way of helping her partner Erwyd combat his depression, which always got worse in January. And so in Jan. 2015 the pair launched the first festival at a small hotel in Llandudno.
Foxee specialises in mixing comedy with dance and illusions to create unique cabaret routines.
Alongside Candy Moon she is also one half of comedy burlesque duo The Calamity Twins.
