A year on, none the wiser. Or are they? Twisted Loaf hurl themselves on the stage. Nina is ripe, perhaps too ripe, even for superstar cabaret sensation Libby. Another hilarious hour of overblown ambition and extreme attitude from two of the daftest comedy loafers around. Mixing contemporary clowning and physical characterisation. 'Balances on a knife edge of genius and mental illness' (List). 'Strange, dark and unpredictable. Twisted Loaf almost defy description.' (Chortle.co.uk). 'You don't often see female comedians prepared to make such fools of themselves' (Bruce Dessau).

A year on, none the wiser. Or are they? Twisted Loaf hurl themselves back to Edinburgh for their second full hour. Nina is ripe, perhaps too ripe, even for superstar cabaret sensation Libby. This is another hilarious hour of overblown ambition and extreme attitude from two of the daftest comedy loafers around, mixing contemporary clowning and physical characterisation.
After sell out shows at last year's Fringe and a hugely successful stint at the Soho Theatre, comedy duo Twisted Loaf head back to Edinburgh with their follow-up show Stale Mate. Watch their hilariously fraught relationship gradually unravel once again as the show unwittingly goes on.
Twisted Loaf are Nina Smith and Libby Northedge. Highly experienced physical performers, they have honed their individual skills in acting, comedy improvisation and clowning to create their own unique style. They won the Funny Women Award within a year of forming and are working on ideas for both television & radio.
