The Nelson Twins

Has there ever been a comedy act like it in the world? The answer is no. The Nelson Twins are the only bearded identical twin comedians on the planet!

The boys first started plying their trade on the comedy circuit in the winter of 2006 and have gone on to become one of the most successful comedy acts in Australia.

Growing up in the rural town of Walbundire, the Nelson Twins spent their early years playing football and cricket and generally getting in to trouble as twins tend to do.

Upon their escape from Walbundrie, the twins both completed their school teaching degrees and embarked on a career of teaching History. It was hear that they formulated the idea for  a curriculum based program in which they now deliver all over Australia to High School students and even corporate clients. 

Their Ned Kelly beards and cracking one liner jokes are just a part of an amazing act that has never before been seen in the entertainment industry.  The boys are constantly fighting amongst themselves on stage in a game of one upmanship that inevitably ends in one gaining the higher status. In addition, the twins are well known for taking on the heckler from time to time, using their sharp wit to place the punter back in their box. 

In 2012 the Nelson Twins burst onto the scene in the Australian TV show Australia’s Got Talent and they haven’t looked back since, quitting their jobs as school teachers, the Nelson Twins have gone on to become one of the most sort after corporate comedy acts in Australia. Weather they are emceeing a conference for a multi national company or doing a short performance to liven up proceedings, the Nelson Twins are guaranteed to leave the audience in stitches. 

The Nelson Twins TV credits include: 

  • Australia’s Got Talent
  • The NRL Footy Show 
  • NBC’s Last Comic Standing
  • 2010 Australian IQ TEST
