Ellis & Rose (Gareth Ellis and Rich Rose) have gained a reputation as one of the most anarchic and spontaneous acts around; no two E&R gigs will be the same!

Their act falls somewhere between sketch comedy, clowning 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.

Neo-Vaudevillian lunacy at its sexiest(?)


“The best double-act I’ve seen in years” – Harry Hill

“Ellis & Rose are exciting, inventive, unpredictable and compelling” – Matthew Crosby of Pappy’s

“Ellis & Rose are the best thing I’ve seen in ages” – Phil Kay

“Just some intellectual twats trying to be funny” – Jim Davidson

“High-energy, innovative stuff from two engaging, entertaining guys” – The Scotsman

Ellis & Rose are winners of a Malcolm Hardee Comedy Award, London Cabaret Award Nominees (for Best Alternative Act) and were included in The Scotsman’s 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Round-Up and Time Out’s Edinburgh Fringe A-Z 2014.
