Flo&Joan_resize

“Musical comedy hasn’t been in such safe hands for years” Brian Donaldson, The List

“[they] briefly appear to be a jolly musical double act, but tear that to pieces about two bars into the first, perfectly timed song” ★★★★ Steve Armstrong, Sunday Times

these intricately crafted, flawlessly performed numbers will have you howling with laughter one minute, wiping away a tear the next” ★★★★ Rupert Hawksley, The Telegraph

“If Flanders & Swann and Flight of the Conchords and Garfunkel & Oates had a six-way time-travelling gang-bang that somehow mixed all their DNA, the offspring might end up sounding something like Flo & Joan” Chortle

Chortle and Leicester Comedy Award winners Flo & Joan – whose songs have reached 50 million views – are set to bring their brand new show Alive On Stage to Soho Theatre from 12th to 17th November, amidst their UK tour and following a sell-out Fringe run which due to popular demand included five additional sell-out shows.

The suspiciously unsimilar sisters’ all-new hour is filled with darkly witty/wittily dark numbers on weddings, sex robots and crisps for women, although probably not all in the same song.

Nicola and Rosie previously starred in a series of adverts for Nationwide Building Society, with their video Sisters being rated YouTube’s most popular advert in January.  Their 2016 Song was an enormous viral hit online and featured on websites including Comedy Central (where it was video of the day), A.V. Club, Glamour and Stylist.  Having spent two years working with the renowned improv company Second City in Toronto, Nicola and Rosie have recently settled back in the UK, where they have appeared on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and Fresh from the Fringe, and established a sell-out monthly residency hosted at London’s Brasserie Zedel.  In 2016 and 2017 they were part of the Best of the Fest selections at both the Montreal and Toronto Sketchfests, also winning the Now Audience Choice Award in Toronto.  Their Canadian TV credits include CBC’s flagship comedy show This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and they have recorded a series of videos for CBC Online.

What the press has said about Flo & Joan

Their style is stiletto sharp, their diction perfect as they race through their complex rhymesBruce Dessau, Evening Standard

endlessly charming, catchy, and bloody brilliantKayleigh Dray, Stylist
