The Kagools - Comedy Biography

The Kagools are a multi award-winning physical comedy duo from the UK. Since their first full-length show in 2014, they’ve quickly gained fans far and wide with their unique brand of wordless (but far from silent) spontaneous, anarchic buffoonery.

An equally sought-after headline act both at home and overseas, their critically acclaimed shows have toured extensively, with recent international appearances including Australia, Norway and Vietnam.

Incredibly versatile, they delight everyone from raucous late night comedy club crowds to daytime family festivals.

Originally created by comedy duo, Wilkinson Ford (Claire Ford "Simply outstanding and has changed my views and opinions on characters, clowning and female acts in general" – Adelaide TalkFringe, and Nicky Wilkinson, Finalist 'So You Think You’re Funny' and 'New Act of the Year' 2013 "Effortless likeability and an excellent comic timing" – Chortle), as recurring characters in their full-length sketch shows, The Kagools proved so popular with audiences that in 2013 the pair shifted their focus to developing shows featuring them exclusively. Wilkinson Ford became The Kagools and never looked back.
