The show is the first night of a 60-date tour – their biggest to date – and finds the musically talented and hilarious sisters climbing out of their pits, armed with a piano and percussion section to deliver critically acclaimed songs and comedy, poking around all the classic topics of the day, from over-thinking and alien lovers to fringes.  

Flo & Joan are the multi-award winning British musical comedy duo, and sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey. The piano/percussion pair have headlined and played to sold-out audiences across the UK, North America and Australia, and their hour-long special is streaming in over 200 countries on Amazon Prime.  

The pair have had high-profile television appearances on Live at the Apollo (BBC2), The Royal Variety Performance 2019 (ITV), Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club (ITV) and The Russell Howard Hour (Sky) and their songs regularly go viral online, having received over 55 million views to date.  

They recently contributed five original songs for the West End musical Death Drop and have written and performed songs for television shows including Horrible Histories (CBBC), Rob Delaney’s Stand Up Central (Comedy Central), BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and Fresh From the Fringe and This Hour Has 22 Minutes (CBC).  

A hugely acclaimed live act, their fourth Edinburgh show, Before the Screaming Starts, completely sold out its run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and added extra shows to keep up with demand before selling out on tour across the country.
