Frisky & Mannish are BACK in Edinburgh with a brand-new hour, packed tighter than Robin Thicke's crotchal region. Now all grown up (just like Miley and Bieber) their barely-conscious recoupling marks the beginning of a new pop-comedy-mashup-infotainment era.
The news of the comeback broke earlier this year, with Frisky & Mannish HQ tweeting: "Great news!! Frisky & Mannish are coming back with a brand-new show! All new material! #edfringe #amazing #YOLO"
Frisky & Mannish's personal Twitter account also confirmed the reunion: "We just had a majorly cringe meeting where our management basically said that 'industry buzz' about us is fading, and if we don't do something soon, we will 'never regain momentum'. So there's a new show."
Despite the rumours currently surrounding the pair - from Mannish's extreme weight gain to Frisky's violent mood swings - F&M HQ are adamant that all is well, and that they'll be getting through the hour show no problem.
Frisky & Mannish are connecting with fans on a whole new level, building incredible buzz with astonishing @Twitter #feedback already. The new show is a real game changer; it's leading, dynamic, forward-thinking and epic. It's so top level.
Frisky and Mannish is the cabaret comedy creation of Laura Corcoran and Matthew Jones. Since bursting onto the scene in 2008, they have become a "global phenomenon" (Times), performing in London's West End, New York, Berlin, Melbourne, New Zealand, Adelaide, Singapore, Perth, and at the Sydney Opera House. They are championed by Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills, who has become one of their biggest fans. The subsequent buzz has cemented their reputation as one of the most sought-after acts on the circuit.
