Life and career

They started in 1993 as comedy trio with Salvatore Borrello performing together on stage as Chiamata Urbana Urgente.

Remained in two, they kept that name until 1998, when they began to use their surnames: Ficarra & Picone.

In 2000 Ficarra e Picone made their film debut with Chiedimi se sono felice, by Aldo, Giovanni & Giacomo and two years later they made the first film as main actors, Nati stanchi.

In 2007 they debuted as directors alongside Gianbattista Avellino with the film Il 7 e l'8, for which they were nominated to David di Donatello for Best New Director and to Silver Ribbon in the same category.

Also in 2007 they were featured as comic characters in the story "Zio Paperone e il rapimento teatrale" (trad. Uncle Scrooge and the theatrical kidnapping), published in the number 2678 of "Topolino".
