This endearing double act who manage to be both childishly ludicrous and strikingly thoughtful at the same time.
Bruce Dessau – Evening Standard
Faultless and Torrance’s shows are a rich mix of the inappropriate and absurd - ludicrous dilemmas, cunning wit, and riotously unlikely physical doings. They welcome you to their world and then lock the door behind you. A world where the logic is perfect but never makes sense. A world of heart rending pathos and side splitting funniness. A world with jokes in. Faultless and Torrance have a growing following for their warped but innocent shows. Join the growth - see them on the comedy circuit or hear them on BBC Radio.
The stage shows.....
Faultless and Torrance In A Night of Shining Armour
A Night of Shining Armour is buffed, oiled and ready for battle. Two Florence Nightingales battle for supremacy, gazelles go down the pub, elasticated mittens wreak havoc, and stanley Gibbons presents his Amazing Stamp Collection. Also, an important breakthrough in the search for a cure for the common cold.
Faultless and Torrance in The Three Musketeers
Two idiots play all four of the three musketeers. See Faultless and Torrance shoe-horn Dumas’ beloved story into an hour of absurd physical comedy and ridiculous plot twists, attempting to save king and country with the assistance of poorly attached facial hair. New meaning is given to ‘One for All, and All For One’ as the two actors play everybody in the King’s court and present all the duels, intrigue and adventure you could wish for. Having completely re-invented this classic tale for the stage, they breathe new life into myriad characters from the three musketeers to D’Artagnan, the villainess Milady de Winter and the dastardly Cardinal Richelieu.
The Faultless and Torrance Extravaganzera
Faultless and Torrance take their Faces/Off
Defying medical science and basic common sense, our heroines swap faces, bodies and finally brains in a struggle to save the audience from a deadly bomb. Inspired by the John Travolta flick Face/Off, Fringe favourites Faultless and Torrance create a blood-soaked comedy carnival of swordplay, jiggling breasts and hideous, unstoppable evil.
“A fresh and original hour of action-packed physical comedy ” Chortle
“Hysterically funny yet strangely endearing” Three Weeks
“Puerile but very funny” The List
How do you play snap with a pack of dogs? Can the wheelbarrow ever lose the race? Who wins a game of Sardines? Tangling the rules and losing on a technicality, Faultless and Torrance are about to find out there’s a snag…
The foolhardy pair plunge headlong into a world of games that even an idiot could win, and end up on a chaotically hilarious polar exploration, where Faultless’ only chance of survival is to eat Torrance’s tuna baps.
If they can only find out how to stop playing charades…
“Impressive, charm and charisma, a strong double act, the delivery is
faultless” Three weeks

The Flirt Lab
Flirting made really simple, under sterile laboratory conditions.
Ms Judith Faultless of the Judith Faultless Institute and Dr Miss Alys Torrance try their best.
Scientific tests that really work, mostly.
Massively researched. Clinically proven. Exciting!
Trust us. We’re a doctor.
“Impressive” The Scotsman

“Completely daft… full of the kind of one-liners and silly gaffs that epitomise British humour” Three Weeks
Sweethearts and Bodyparts
Written by Alys Torrance and the tremendous Miss Charity Trimm (Three Girls in a Boat). Performed by Alys Torrance, Charity Trimm and Judith Faultless.
They've sniffed you out (no offence) and ridden right into the campfire of your lives, so make room in your hearts - hell, your going to need a bypass! The ladies are livin' proof that Country and Western ain't dead. In fact, no-one is dead. They can prove it. They look like a million dollars (approximately £600,000 sterling). They sing like angels. So snuggle up close like cattle in a mincer and warm your hands on them. These gals wanna raise a little dust tonight. And the funds for a good lawyer.
