Never miss another 'Shirley and Shirley' show
Shirley and Shirley, Pajama Men, Abandoman
A spanking new monthly night of variety and chaos brought to you by Shirley and Shirley. Enjoy an evening of comedy, clowning and music from some of the best artists from around the world.
'A show that could be used as a master class for performers to study as how to really do sketch comedy justice' (One4Review).
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
Shirley and Shirley are writer/ performers Joanna Carolan and Pascale Wilson and writer/ director Michael Pearce.
'You barely have time to recover from the laughter evoked by one sketch before you're clutching your sides at the next one. It's clear that they want to do their own thing and not just reproduce the same old worn out sketches done a million times before' (Three Weeks)
'Take two women, a seemingly endless array of accents and an hour's worth of imaginative sketches. Character observation is clearly this duo's main stock in trade and with such well executed vignettes throughout, it's clear that these two are no amateurs. This show is a riot of silliness, lovingly and confidently honed into a show that shouldn't be missed' (Funny Women).

The Pajama Men have smashed all previous box office records at London's Soho theatre, sold out a season at the Sydney Opera House, earned the title, Double Act of the Year in The Times and signed development deals with Bigtalk Productions (Sean of the dead, Scott Pilgrim vs The World), BBC Radio 4, 2entertain, Live Nation, and Levity Entertainment group.
'The Pajama Men create a cartoon of the mind – a shape-shifting world in which anything seems not just possible, but imminent' (The Guardian?)
'I was doubled over in a kind of hysterical agony. I felt as if my lungs had migrated into my throat and that my anatomy would soon be inside out' (Washington Post)
'Every now and again - though all too rarely - a comedy show comes along that casts things in a new light... this American duo ultimately possesses a marvellously unique appeal' (Evening Standard).
Pajama Men tour dates
Abandoman create hilarious musical sketches at lightning speed live in front of their audience. No two gigs are ever the same. The project sees frontman Rob and multi-instrumentalist James Hancox reinventing hip hop in a way that appeals to even its most ardent detractors.
They sold out the Edinburgh Fringe for 3 weeks in a row and were winners of the Hackney Empire New Act Of The Year 2010.
'Flight of the Conchords meets 8 Mile. Nothing short of genius' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'Truly innovative' (The Guardian)
'Killer punchlines. Note-perfect, lyrically mind-blowing hip-hop improv. Genius!' (The Stage)
'A star of the future!' (Time Out)
'For the whole hour we were enthralled by a comedic mastermind at work' (Broadway Baby)
'A proper party. raucous, expansive and relentlessly hilarious' (The Times).
