On Saturday 13 May, BBC Radio 4 comedy duo Croft and Pearce will perform their new show, Croft & Pearce Are Not Themselves at New Greenham Arts, Newbury.
After a total sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and a hit series on BBC Radio 4 with The Croft & Pearce Show, these award-winning comedians are bringing their hilarious new sketch comedy show to Newbury for one night only this May.
Since 2011, when they first started writing and performing together, Hannah Croft and Fiona Pearce have performed sell out shows in London, New York and around the UK, and are fast gaining recognition for their unique brand of sketch comedy. Their latest comedic offering cleverly interlinks a wide range of immaculately written and beautifully performed characters, impressively presented without the use of costume or set changes, instead relying solely on the pair’s talent as performers.
In 2014, the duo won an Edinburgh Spirit of the Fringe Award and their episode of BBC Radio 4’s Sketchorama was nominated for Best Scripted Comedy at the BBC Audio Drama Awards, leading to the commission of their first solo sketch show for BBC Radio 4, The Croft & Pearce Show. Following their success at Edinburgh Fringe in 2016, they launched a podcast with their hit characters June and Jean, and are now back on the road with a whole host of entertaining new character combinations.
