Comedy double-act Shelf are Ruby and Rachel. Have you picked a favourite yet? Which one? I thought as much.
Unusual among comedy double-acts for sharing a name with the most basic of storage facilities, Shelf are South London’s finest sketch act and dog impersonators. Captivatingly silly and ever engaging, Rachel Watkeys Dowie and Ruby Clyde delight in twisty reveals and playful honesty.
Since their formation in 2015, Shelf have performed at Bestival, London Pride, and been nominated for Sketchfest’s Best New Act award. Their work has appeared on BBC3 and LADBible, and they are founding members of cult sell-out shows The LOL Word and ACMS.
“…cool and relevant” (The Skinny)
“What makes their show really stand out is the crackling chemistry between their on stage personae” (the broad uk)
“Everything they do is organic and fresh…the audience is given permission to join in with their friendship: they let us in to their lives, flaunting their flaws and thus showcasing their qualities. Their honesty encourages laughing along and their comic timing ensures it” (Daily Info)
