Kia Ora. We are Two Hearts, a comedy/pop music duo consisting of
Laura Daniel & Joseph Moore.
You might have seen one of our shows at the NZ or Melbourne
International Comedy festivals. You also might not have! Either way
- after a bunch of sell-out seasons in the NZ Comedy Festival, the
best reviews we've ever had, and a nomination for the Billy T Award
- we've decided to ride this wave of momentum all the way to the
most terrifyingly crowded arts market in the world - the Edinburgh
Two Hearts: Edinburgh World Tour is a is a
loving parody of a Beyonce/Katy Perry/Taylor Swift-sized
multi-million dollar arena concert - complete with distractingly
catchy songs, sexy dance moves, and literal buckets of confetti.
Only difference between the arena shows is that our songs have
jokes in them, and we have slightly fewer seats (60 to be
You, a patron of the arts, already know this - the Edinburgh
Fringe is bloody massive. There are thousands of shows every day,
competing for the attention of the public and ultimately vying for
the same coveted prize - a long and fruitful career in the arts.
Edinburgh has been a launching pad for the careers of many of NZ
and the rest of the world's best comedians, and with any luck, it
can be one for us as well. We just need a little bit of help - in
the form of your thoughts and prayers (and money).
What Will We Spend Your Money On?
Turns out going to Edinburgh is nightmarishly expensive, who knew?
We've put in most of the groundwork ourselves, we spent many
thousands of dollars from our own pockets developing the show for
NZ and Melbourne - building sets, designing costumes, and turning
Two Hearts into the tourable show it is today. However, we have
fallen just short, and to make this Edinburgh trip - we need help,
we're not afraid to admit it!
Most importantly: we need flights back home. We're all booked to
head over there, but shiiiiit we have not booked the return. Please
don't make us live in Scotland forever!
Also: we need to pay some ground staff in Edinburgh to help us
promote and pack in our show. We are but two people!
Finally: tech hire - Two Hearts would be a terrible show if we had
microphones with big old wires hanging out of them that we
constantly tripped over whilst trying to dance. Luckily, somebody
invented microphones with no wires... unfortunately that somebody
is a horrible capitalist who charges lots of money to hire their
Our crowdfunding matra is "Everybody gets one". So... this is
our one, we'll never do one of these again, get in quick!
(Sincerely though, we appreciate any donation, thank you for
helping us FOLLOW OUR DREAMS)
