Melbourne International Comedy Festival presents
Frisky & Mannish's School Of Pop (UK)
Frisky and Mannish are musicians on a mission. Their contorted pop cabaret mash-ups promise you will never think of The Bangles in the same way again!
Have you ever found a pop song funny? Ever been so angry you exploded in a chorus of Beat It? It’s Eternal Flame, Jim, but not as we know it. Felicity Fitz-Frisky, a fabulous chanteuse, and Hansel Amadeus Mannish, an incredible maestro, are the creators and purveyors of their own peculiar brand of "twisted pop cabaret." They scrutinize every major pop icon from the past thirty years and discover the underlying meaning, often far removed from the one universally accepted.
You want to know what's really going on beneath the vacuous pop propaganda of Lily Allen, Chesney Hawkes, Girls Aloud, George Michael, Kate Nash and the Pussycat Dolls, among others? Come willing to learn, and you will leave with plenty.
The smash of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, this daring duo are sure to get your freak-on with their contorted cabaret pop mash-ups.
"Skilfully layered and musically surprising… The sun is in the sky for Frisky and Mannish and – for an hour at least – you won't want to be anywhere else." The Guardian, UK
“If you don't enjoy Frisky and Mannish, you have no soul." Chortle, UK
“One of the most upbeat hours of comedy I've seen this year." The Observer, UK
