Croft and Pearce

Hannah Croft & Fiona Pearce, stars of BBC Radio 4’s ‘The Croft & Pearce Show’ and ‘Sketchorama’, winners of the Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award and WhatsOnLondon Comedy Award nominees bring their huge sketch talents back to the Theatre Touring circuit. This talented duo and BBC ‘Next Big Thing’ Act have sold out theatres in London, New York, and around the UK with their “head-flingingly funny” sketches (Broadway Baby ★★★★★).

Having taken Edinburgh 2017 and into 2018 off to produce their most labour-intensive work to date (their first babies, born a week apart), Croft & Pearce return with a hugely successful brand new sketch-based tale, featuring some of their star characters, such as June and Jean, alongside an exciting cocktail of brand new creations.

Hannah and Fiona met at school, followed each other to Oxford University, then both trained for three years at drama school (Hannah at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Fiona at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama). Their BBC Radio 4 ‘Sketchorama’ episode resulted in a nomination for Best Scripted Comedy at the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2015. This led to the commission of their first solo sketch show for BBC Radio 4, ‘The Croft & Pearce Show’. In addition to their own live shows and Radio 4 series, they have written for Tracey Breaks The News (BBC1), Numtums (CBeebies), and The Mash Report (BBC2).
