About Wilkinson Ford


Comedy duo Wilkinson Ford formed in 2011. Since then they've been wowing both online and live audiences with their unique brand of sketch and character comedy.

Their spoof take on a Wilkinson Sword commercial attracted the attention of the BBC and won them a host of internet fans as far afield as Barbados!

To date, they've staged two full length shows; The Gherkin Fantasies which enjoyed a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival in 2011 and The Wilkinson Ford Variety Show which they performed at London's Lion & Unicorn Theatre in 2012. Both shows have combined pre-recorded footage and live performance to brilliant effect.

This year they return to the Edinburgh Fringe with a new show, entitled Wilkinson Ford: Webmasters, using the same compelling formula.

Both talented performers in their own right, Nicola Wilkinson (actress and stand-up comedian - Finalist, New Act of the Year 2013) and Claire Ford (comedy character actress and film-maker - Creator of internet sensation Terri Skyler of BBC Pilot Fat Pipes fame) have amazing chemistry as a double-act, making Wilkinson Ford a name to be sure to look out for!
