Bonnie and Clydeside are Rebecca Bain and Alex Garrick-Wright, a comedy duo based in Scotland, but 300 miles apart. They’re very annoyed that they won’t get credit for pioneering joke-writing via Zoom.
It’s a tale as old as time; they met at an improv workshop, both pretending to be horny gazelles, and started writing together soon after. A couple of years down the line, and they’ve written for a number of programmes on radio, TV, and online. They’ve also won the British Comedy Guide’s Making A Scene Of It award for a sitcom script about 3 bickering engineers chained to a radiator, and the Audience Choice Award at the Shetland Screenplay Film Festival for their BBC Sketch, The Sun Caller!
Rebecca tells everyone she’s half-Scottish, but she lives in Edinburgh and her Mum’s from Fife so it’s like 1/3 at best. She’s the funny one. Rebecca is a comedy robot; good at the process of structuring and writing excellent jokes.
Alex is a Glaswegian and won’t shut up about it. He’s the one with the nice hair, and lives on a cold island in the middle of nowhere. Alex is a comedy pirate; good at hilarious ideas, unique characters and massive over-acting.
