The delightful Dorothy and Florence Carlson, otherwise known as Dot and Flo, were sisters who performed a Fat Girl Boxing Act. Though not confirmed, the sisters may have been twins. Nor is it confirmed that they were born in Brooklyn in 1911 as reported in an early newspaper article.

The first mention we find of them is in the September 26, 1925 Billboard where they were with The Linderman Shows, and described as "practically newcomers in the business, but they are both clever entertainers and make a fine attraction."
