About The Show

After a successful run last year, The Vagabonds of Comedy are back and this time bigger and better than before in Counting House - The Ballroom at 11:45pm.

If you missed it last year. The Vagabonds of Comedy is an exquisitely silly variety night, featuring an assorted selection of comedy, cabaret and musical acts from around the Fringe.

A nonsense travelling show curated and hosted by Fico, 'erratic, eclectic, talented and absolutely hilarious' (ItalianBrew.co.uk) and Frank, 'has his audience hooting with laughter' **** (EdinburghSpotlight.com).

United by the need to outshine and interrupt each other, Frank and Fico bring lightness and chaos to the stage at every move; by improvising songs and riffing off each other and the audience, all the while exploring their friendship and place in the world, they create a suspended and magical atmosphere of playfulness.

Meet the hosts

Imaan Hadchiti.Imaan 'Frank' Hadchiti

Lebanese by blood, Australian by birth, European by 2020. Standing at just 3.4 ft, Frank holds a Guinness World Record, for 'The Worlds Shortest (full-time) Comedian'; finally, all of his hard work of breathing and continuing to exist has paid off. But that is all secondary information after 13 years on the stage Frank has forged himself as an Internationally renowned comedian. "...antithesis of cute... Completely inappropriate.' Broadway Baby

Filippo Spreafico.Filippo 'Fico' Spreafico

Born in Italy, he has lived abroad from a young age, trying his luck with different careers, from academic to construction builder. He sold out shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and Adelaide Fringe 2019. He trained at Ecole Philippe Gaulier in Paris and Second City in Chicago. 'Eclectic, erratic, mispronounced, talented and absolutely Hilarious' (Italianbrew.co.uk)
