CB: What is your show about?
Sisters: Our first full show, ‘White Noise’, is about our three favourites things: Comedy, The Internet & Friendship. Desperate to become famous comedians, we live stream the entire show to genuine people all around the world in the hope it will speed up the process. But will we manage it!? And is the Pleasance Wifi fast enough to cope with this social experiment?! All the answers you desire, and much much less will be revealed in this debut hour of sketch comedy.
CB: Why did you write this show?
Sisters: It all started last year when we were doing a 40-minute show and a girl called Hannah left her number in our money-bucket. *Offers high-5. A few months later, we decided it would be funny to FaceTime her and record us plugging our next show to her. She never answered but, drunk off the idea (and the half pint we shared at lunch) we started calling random numbers on FaceTime and plugging our show to them. Results were very interesting. The more we did it, the funnier we found it; we lolled at the idea of two comedians trying to find an audience online but instead of tweeting jokes or putting sketches on YouTube they directly contact people they’ve never met before through Facetime.
CB: What comedians and comedy writers have impacted the way you write your show structures and material?
Sisters: We love the silliness of Sheeps and the neatness of The Pin. As for TV stuff, we love South Park, Atlanta, The Office…
CB: What is your advice for new comedians and writers who want to write their first show?
Sisters: Be yourself. Unless you’re not funny, in which case find someone else to be. That’s what we did.
Sisters will perform their show White Noise at the Edinburgh Festival.
