Imagine Laurel & Hardy attacking The Chuckle Brothers. Now imagine Paul Chuckle setting your mind on fire. Now imagine Laurel eating Hardy. Now imagine Barry Chuckle extinguishing your mind. This just happened. Now you belong to us.
“For an act to be at such an early stage and show such promise can only mean a bright future. It’s time a bit of good old anarchy returned to British comedy and Ellis and Rose’s unique slant on the world might be just the thing to fit the bill… A tantalising glimpse of future stardom” – The Public Reviews
Hailing from Goldsmiths University of London, a place where innovators and creators are born, Ellis & Rose decided to make the kind of stuff they want to see, instead of waiting for someone else to make it. The result is irreverent, dark, chaotic, joyful and an utter delight. Their act falls somewhere (and nowhere) between sketch, character and cabaret gone wrong, making them a refreshing antidote to a scene full of stand-ups talking about themselves and actors trying to do comedy. Ellis & Rose have funny bones.
Catch them soon, before one of them dies.
