About Us

Shirley & Shirley are Joanna Carolan and Pascale Wilson

Filtering the world through their fabulously twisted minds, this dynamic duo deliver a deliciously dark feast of character comedy and stand-up.

As well as six years performing at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, Shirley & Shirley have travelled the length and breadth of Britain bringing joy to its most insalubrious venues including Madam Jojo’s, Soho Theatre, Latitude, Leicester Comedy Festival, The Stand Comedy Club, Bloomsbury Theatre, Spank at The Southbank, not excluding Bolu Kebab House.

These two childhood friends have shocked and awed many unsuspecting audiences for over a decade. They are without a doubt, the best Irish-Palestinian, British-Surinamese duo on the circuit.

Credits include: Sketchorama (BBC Radio 4), BBC Comedy Online, Bad Teeth (Hat Trick Productions), The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret (C4), PhoneShop (C4), Marley’s Ghosts (Gold), Purge of Thrones (Netflix)
