Their unique, sharp-tongued style has taken them around the world with multiple sell-out tours and appearances at the Just For Laughs Festival Montreal and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Now they are back with their biggest ever UK national tour, poking around all the classic topics of the day: over-thinking, alien lovers and fringes.
Flo & Joan have featured on BBC’s Live at The Apollo, the 2019 Royal Variety Performance, Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast, Russell Howard Hour, Jonathan Ross’ Comedy Club, as well as online with over 50 million views of their viral songs. In 2019, the duo released Alive on Stage, an Amazon Prime Video special based on their Edinburgh Fringe Show from the previous year. Their song “Drank too much”, which recounts a fictitious night drinking with a non-existent friend Dino, has featured on many comedy shows. In 2018, they were featured in a Nationwide building society television advert.
