Croft & Pearce: Are Not Themselves
Hannah Croft and Fiona Pearce are rapidly rising stars of the Comedy Sketch world. They have created a range of beautifully observed and hilarious characters supported by strong comedy writing skills and incredibly seamless performances.
In the past year they have performed at the Edinburgh, Leicester, Brighton, Larmer Tree and Tringe Festivals as well as solo show runs in London and New York where sell out shows accompanied by 4 and 5 star reviews have gained them significant interest from the Industry.
Their first appearance on BBC R4’s Sketchorama in 2014 gained them the status as the ‘break out act of the series’. This resulted in a commission for their first ever solo Sketch Series by BBCR4. The Croft & Pearce Show (Celador Radio) transmitted Spring 2016 for 4 weeks, 11pm.
Edinburgh Festival favorites this year saw Croft & Pearce receiving a Fringe Total Sell Out Laurel for their run at Underbelly. Edinburgh Festival has also seen them being invited to perform at various prestigious gigs: Radio Forth Gala at The 3000 seater Playhouse, the long running Pick Of The Fringe corporate showcase at The Sheraton and the BBC Stage in their Next Big Thing show.
Croft & Pearce also work as actresses (both trained: Guildhall and Central) and writers. In addition to their own solo shows and radio commission, they have written episodes for CBeebies (Numtums).
