Kelfi & Fikel
Fiona Della Ca and Kellie Higgins are Kelfi & Fikel (SMH's Top 10 Rising Comedians 2012, Slide Cabaret Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival), a quirky new musical comedy duo. Their original songs and sketches are irreverent, crude and unapologetic. You can't help but laugh, blush, or at least tap your foot as they team up their warped characters in off-the-wall scenarios.
With Higgins at the piano, their beautiful voices wonderfully compliment each other, so, despite whatever profanities or obscenities might be coming out of their mouths, they are at least easy on the ear.
Kelfi & Fikel have been likened to French and Saunders, the Mighty Boosh, Cook and Moore, and Snugglepot and Cuddlepie on acid. The relationship between Della Ca & Higgins (real-life friends since primary school) is unpredictable, daring and a joy to behold.
If you enjoy character-based, naughty musical comedy, with more one-liners than you can poke a stick at, come and check out the uniquely twisted perspective of Kelfi & Fikel.
