Ring mistress and compere Annabelle Holland is the only female knife thrower in the UK. She is raring to add more glitz to your event or cabaret. Likened to Joan Simms from Carry on fame Annabelle is warm hearted, cheeky and dagger sharp with her wit. No one is safe! She’s not afraid to break down the barriers between stage and audience and has been know to throw knives at men picked from the crowd!

“Annabelle is a great mistress of ceremonies.  Always funny,  she can’t help but make the audience feel at home.  With a smile on her face,  Annabelle eases comedy from even the most bland of situations which leaves the audience falling about in stitches.”  Interstella Cabaret

Main Stage – Redfest
