Shelf are a musical comedy double act. Sort of. One of them is tone deaf, so technically they’re a musical single act and guest.

In their brand new show, One Man Band, watch how Shelf over come the odds to create musical comedy and slamming EDM.

Shelf is made up of Rachel WD and Ruby Clyde. Already lifelong friends, they started performing as Shelf in 2015. Shelf started out at open mic nights, honing a style that is “a winning hybrid of sketch show and standup” (Edfringe Review)
