With a young, fresh aproach to comedy, Shannon Woodford and Joel Checkley are out to prove that they can make a room full of strangers laugh as much as they do each other. Their 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, Twice Shy, tells the story of two strangers living separate but equally isolated lives. With sketch comedy, a splash of filmmaking and a healthy dose of heart, Twice Shy promises to be a truly whimsical and hilarious debut. Shannon and Joel’s combined experience in live performance, film and music gives this duo a unique flavour within the festival that is bound to leave a smile on your face.

Shannon Woodford has a background in Cabaret and Theatre and was a National Finalist in MICF’s Raw Comedy (2009). Twice Shy will be Shannon’s third time as a performer in the MICF, having performed in the cabaret show Hello Doona (2008) and the sketch show The Hipster Resistance Variety Hour (2011).

Joel Checkley has a background in film and music. He has played in countless live music venues across Melbourne and has written and directed several short films and comedy sketches.
