There’s an assumption that the world and his wife heads off to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival.

Well O&O don’t do Edinburgh.

Instead comedy duo Tessa Gaukroger and Marina O’Shea are staying in London to stage their new show at Hen & Chickens Theatre, Islington on July 4.

The pair have alter egos. Several. There’s Wolfgang, an American jazz poet with a penchant for vegetables, an over zealous parking attendant called Betty, and Trevor, a man who fails to understand the necessity of trousers in public places.

All part of the new show, O&O Don’t Do Edinburgh – aptly named because the ladies aren’t migrating north with the rest of the country’s comedians.

Instead, this up and coming comedy due are storming their way back around the UK in 2014.

Expect a show of sketch comedy, audience interaction, songs, breathing and general unbridled joy.

They’ve been compared to The Two Ronnies and Morecambe & Wise, but with boobs (neither are owning up to the hairy legs).

Here is a taste of what to expect:
