Shirley and Shirley

Part of Leicester Comedy Festival 2023

Shirley & Shirley are back and feeling more geriatric than ever. The award-winning double act return to bring more hilarious home truths about the pleasures and pitfalls of motherhood.

The creators of the podcast Motherfunk – whose guests have included Jen Brister, Bryony Gordon and Lady Rizo – are back where they belong: in the limelight, and with a lockdown baby each.

Despite going to the same school, sharing a birthday, having foreign mums, and timing their children’s births together, they couldn’t be more different. In Geriatric Mums they will tell their stories of bringing up babies, one with a man, one with a woman and what going from one sprog to two has taught them – dive into their world of rip- roaring stand up and rambunctious sketch.

With their knackered backs, droopy sacks and clean out of cash, Shirley & Shirley have really got something to shout about.

“The punk-rock of comedy” Phill Jupitus, The Independent.
