Shirley & Shirley are Joanna Carolan and Pascale Wilson.

Shirley & Shirley are without a doubt the best British-Surinamese, Irish-Palestinian double act working on the comedy circuit today.

With a background in clowning, physical theatre and improvisation, Pascale and Joanna have developed a unique brand of pitch-black sketch comedy during their eight years as a duo.

They have taken their uproarious characters – from dysfunctional couples, morose sex robots to gamblers and binge drinkers – as well as loving satire that covers everything from Les Mis to Carol and Pina Bausch, to comedy clubs and pubs the length and breadth of Britain. This includes six years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and one of the headliners at last year’s Bloomsbury Festival.
