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.
They are consummate compères and have appeared at such venues as Cafe De Paris, Clapham Grand and that goth pub in Brighton.
Ellis & Rose are Malcolm Hardee Comedy Award winners, and London Cabaret Award Nominees (for Best Alternative Act). They were included in The Scotsman’s 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Round-Up, Time Out’s Edinburgh Fringe A-Z Comedy Highlights 2014, The List’s Top Shows About Death 2014 and Such Small Portions’ Pick of Interactive Shows 2014.
Neo-Vaudevillian lunacy at its sexiest! (Probably)
