Ellis & Rose are neo-Vaudevillian mavericks. For some reason, they were allowed to make comedy which would end up on a stage – the result is terribly irreverent, dark, chaotic, joyful and stupid. Their act falls somewhere (and nowhere) between sketches, shouty nonsense and cabaret gone wrong, making them a refreshing antidote to people talking about themselves and holding a microphone steadily in-front of their face with little or no flailing about or gurning. Ellis & Rose have funny bones… which they keep in a box under their bed.
