Sisters, made up of Christy White-Spunner and Mark Jones, are a sketch duo who are bringing their debut show, White Noise, to this year’s Edinburgh Festival. Sisters will be performing at the Pleasance Courtyard throughout August.
1) What excites you most about the Edinburgh Festival?
The pad thai in Assembly gardens.
2) What is your first Edinburgh show about?
Our show is called ‘White Noise’ and it’s about our three favourite things: Comedy, the internet and friendship. It features us desperately trying to find an online audience by Facetiming complete strangers in between sketches.
3) Does your comedy attract a certain type of audience?
Yeah complete bloody nutters. Also our parents.
4) What would be your worst Edinburgh accommodation nightmare?
Our worst Edinburgh accommodation nightmare would probably be an evil terraced house chasing us down the royal mile but we can’t run properly and whenever we try to cry out for help our voices don’t work.
5) What is your most treasured memory of your comedy career so far?
Sadiq Kahn coming to see our show. He didn’t put any money in the bucket.
6) What show will you definitely be seeing at the festival this year?
The Wrestling! Partly because that’s the only show we’ve actually booked so far.
7) What do you hope to gain from the Edinburgh Festival this year?
This is our debut show so we really just want to put ourselves on the map and for people to leave having really enjoyed it. Also a 6 figure movie deal.
8) What do you imagine your last ever show will be about?
Probably our theory that the world is going to end the day after.
