FLO & JOAN Musical comedy sisters return with a bite
With a raft of four and i ve stars jostling for space on their tour poster, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan (actual real sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey) have plenty love to fall back on when online morons rear their anonymous and spiteful heads. After some horrendous internet abuse last year, the pair managed to put it behind them and produce a top-notch Edinburgh Fringe show, and now tour, entitled Alive on Stage. Foot-tappingly sweet tunes with a jet-black edge are their thing as they sing about divorce rates, sex robots, binge boozing and the cheesy snack company which plans to manufacture handbag-sized crisps for women. And if hateful web trolls think they’re getting off lightly, woe betide and hell mend them. (Brian Donaldson) ■ The Stand, Glasgow, Thu 17 Jan; The Stand, Edinburgh, Sat 19 Jan.
