DOUBLE DELIGHT: Flo & Joan, the alter egos of sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey

TWO heads are definitely better than one when a comedy show comes to Barnard Castle next month.

Flo & Joan are the alter-egos of sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey.

Following last year’s sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, London’s Soho Theatre and an appearance at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, they will bring their dark waggish musical comedy to The Witham as part of their current UK tour.

Flo & Joan are TV regulars on shows such as Live at the Apollo (BBC2) and The Royal Variety Performance 2019 (ITV).

The piano/percussion pair have also headlined and played to sold-out audiences across the UK, North America and Australia, and recorded their hour-long special which is now streaming in more than 200 countries on Amazon Prime.

They are also perhaps best known for writing and starring in a series of adverts for Nationwide Building Society, with their video Sisters being rated YouTube’s most popular advert in January 2018.

Promoter Peter Dixon, of Funny Way To Be Comedy, said: “Having seen Flo & Joan perform live a number of times I was very keen to bring them to Barnard Castle.

“Their shows are great fun and they certainly know how to entertain a crowd.

“It is the sort of show that can be enjoyed by people who enjoy comedy or simply love a good song.”

The show will take place on Tuesday, February 18. Tickets are £14, and are available from The Witham Box Office on 01833 631107 or online at

The show is suitable for ages 14+.
