Long-Distance Roommates

'Long-Distance Roommates' is an hour of stand up comedy, split between up-and- coming comedians Casey Filips and Ollie West.

After meeting in 2019 Casey and Ollie did everything together. Traveled Europe together. Trained to be clowns in France together. Survived covid lockdowns together. Even ran from the home-counties biggest gangsters together. But after Casey had to return to Australia, the partnership seemed over…until now.

Reunited after years apart, with covid and visa issues behind them, these two delightfully idiotic fellas finally share the story of their wildly unique friendship, filled with tales so ridiculous they couldn’t possibly have made them up.

Come and enjoy a rip roaring night between two of the scene’s brightest talents. For Brits, Aussies or anyone who just enjoys laughing at them (the French), 'Long-Distance Roommates' will be a hilarious night of absurd stand up at its best, and an overjoyous ball of heartwarming chaos at its worst.
