Two girls, one fabric. A kid's party for grown-ups.
Double Denim is a kid’s party for grown ups. Michelle Brasier (Aunty Donna’s 1999) and Laura Frew welcome you into their 90s-themed party in honour of their very special guests - the king and queen of denim attire - Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake!
But, oh no! Michelle forgot to send the invitations and no one got the dress code memo. Are the audience even here for the party or did they buy a ticket to a comedy show thinking they were going to getting witty observational comedy delivered by a face off the telly?!
Never fear, Michelle and Laura gift you an hour of high-energy silliness, party games, sketches and sing-alongs. Along the way they get to know the audience, and the audience get to know them… a little too well.
Double Denim conjures up all the joy and angst of your teen years with none of the innocence. Quintessentially Gen Y in its themes and delivery, this award-winning show allows us to do what many have wished for; revisit our youth with the wisdom of age.
Will there be Shania Twain? The answer is yes.

Unique Selling Point
Double Denim is an hour of absurd, nostalgia-filled immersive sketch comedy exploring growing-up and friendship. The duo have a way of holding up a mirror to the Gen Y experience; a generation that have seen a world transition from relative innocence to global-interconnectedness, and obsession with technology and celebrity; and an ever-increasing disconnection from the generations above. Woven cleverly into silly skits, absurd audience games and plenty of 90s hits, Double Denim explores the frantic inner-workings of a generation trying to make sense of a changing world – in short, they’re not afraid to say what we’re all thinking.
