Flo and Joan and Kai Samra: Edinburgh Preview
20th Jul 2019
StageSpace - Pleasance London
In January, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan watched the Bros documentary and saw a glimpse into their future; a lot of dog portraits and male pattern baldness. Anyway, following a sell-out run in 2018, they have a new hour of their dark and waggish songs to parade about the place.

Award-winning stand-up comedian Kai Samra presents his hotly tipped debut hour. Join Kai as he hilariously dissects life as a young, working class, British Asian in the 21st Century – from police stop-and-searches to a complete lack of options at fancy dress parties.
He reflects on personal stories of homelessness, the gentrification of the arts and the rise of right-wing politics in his home town.
As seen/heard on ITV2, BBC Three, BBC Asian Network and BBC Radio 4’s Sketchtopia.
‘Slick and confident… A strong comic voice that tangentially addresses big issues' (Steve Bennett, Chortle.co.uk)
