Elly Shaw and Elaine Fellows: This Girl Can't

Split Bill work in progress show from Elly Shaw and Elaine Fellows. Two friends just trying their best in life.

Elaine Fellows - Appealingly natural. Original yet relatable material ‘Chortle’

Delightfully low energy, holds the audience well ‘The Reviews Hub’

Absolutely fantastic. A star in the making ‘Brighton Grin’

Elaine was recently a finalist in the Brighton Grin New Comedian of the Year Award 2021. She has also reached the final stages of several other new comedian competitions such as Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year 2021, So You Think You’re Funny 2021 and The Max Turner Prize 2020. When she’s not doing comedy, Elaine is the voice of bingo commercials which, if that doesn’t entice you, I don’t know what will.

Elly Shaw - Likeable and charismatic ‘Ken Cheng’

Elly Shaw recently finished training in character and clown with Philippe Gaulier in Paris. Starting her comedy career with standup, she is now finding success with more alternative character and clown work. Elly won the Quantum Leopard competition in October 2019. She has also been a finalist in the Yellow Comedy Young Comedian of the Year Awards and a semi-finalist in the Get Up Stand Up competition at the Stand Up Club.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 27, 2022    Three Weeks

Elaine Fellows relaxes the sitting-room setting nicely, calling their free show ‘Sky you’re stealing off your neighbours’. She affectionately introduces award-winning character comic Elly Shaw, whose Russian stereotype ‘Tatiana’s, Zoopla obsession introduces that ‘WTF’ factor. ‘Anna Kendrick’, who f*cks about with a cup, and ‘woman who thinks her collarbones are her best feature’, are inspired. Shaw’s recreation of a punter’s ‘ick’ moment fails, but she’ll become a brilliant character comic if she fully embraces the cringe. Stand-up Fellows introduces herself as ‘a piece of sh*t’ – she’s actually likeable and bang-on about ‘Elaines’ being ‘disciples of Karen’, though her observational relationship material deserves proper punchlines. However, her dead rat, ghost nan and tooth fairy anecdotes are funny and endearing. These women can. Click Here For Review
