The Travelling Sisters are Lucy Fox, Laura Trenerry and Ell Sachs. They are a Gaulier trained comedy trio from Brisbane, Australia. Combining physical comedy, contemporary clown and original music, the trio conjure up bizarre worlds of tragically charming characters. They create sketch comedy with a whole lot of heart, treading the line between the beautiful and the grotesque, the idiotic and the profound, the whimsical and the downright ridiculous.
After falling in love at The University of Southern Queensland The Travelling Sisters made it official in 2014, debuting their first show at Woodford Folk Festival. Since then they have toured their critically acclaimed comedy show on the national and international festival circuits. They were nominated for Best Newcomer at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2017. After this, they created a brand new show 'NOO SHO' and won Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe and the New Zealand Fringe Tour Ready Award.
The Travelling Sisters have performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Perth Fringe World, Bedford Fringe Festival, Prague Fringe Festival, Clockenflap Festival Hong Kong, Glastonbury Festival and Anywhere Theatre Festival, as well as in independent venues in Australia, the UK and Europe.
With a hot new show under their belts The Travelling Sisters are set to pack up shop and begin tour life once again, hitting the Australian and UK festival circuit in 2018.
