Faye Treacy is a comedian, presenter and musician.
Born in Croydon, South London, Faye had a relatively normal childhood till she was sent to the local Convent. Five years later upon getting kicked out of her Convent school (for putting the Convent on eBay), she packed her bags and went to the Brit School of Performing Arts. Realising she never wanted to be a Pop Star she went onto to study trombone at the Royal Academy of Music.
Upon graduation Faye had a busy freelance career. Her musical career highlights include having been the resident trombonist for the Chris Moyle’s Quiz Night on Channel 4, as well as playing for The Selector, Kiko Bun, The Maccabees, Rod Stewart, Tankus The Henge, PRO Glenn Millar Big Band, Hackney Colliery Brass Band, Riot Jazz and The London Vegetable Orchestra.
Always being a keen fan of John Cage, she always wanted to try comedy, so after being forced on stage by a comedian housemate she decided to give it a go and went on to win ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Musical Comedy Awards in 2015. Since then her comedy career has rocketed, seeing her perform internationally at venues including: The Frog and Bucket, XS MALARKEY, The Stand, Top Secret, 99 Club, The Glee Club, Angel Comedy Club, Utrecht International Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and Leicester Comedy Festival.
In 2018 she took her debut hour “The Problem with Faye Treacy” at the Edinburgh Fringe to rave reviews, with one of her jokes listed as a top Joke of the fringe in the Evening Standard, The Mirror and The Daily Record.
2019 saw Faye join Bauer’s new classical music station, Scala Radio where she presents the weekend evening slots.
