“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 back to Soho Theatre from 30th April to 1st May, following a sell-out run at Soho Theatre amidst their hugely successful UK tour.
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 had an enormous viral hit online with their 2016 Song which was subsequently featured on websites including Comedy Central (where it was video of the day), A.V. Club, Glamour and Stylist, as well as previously writing and starring in a series of adverts for Nationwide Building Society, with their video Sisters being rated YouTube’s most popular advert in January 2018. Having spent two years working with the renowned improv company Second City in Toronto, Nicola and Rosie have settled back in the UK, where they have appeared on Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and Fresh from the Fringe (BBC Radio 4), written and performed two songs for Horrible Histories (CBBC), 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.
