Touring until 26th October 2019
Welcome back Frisky & Mannish, who this year celebrate 10 years since they burst onto the scene with their wildly popular brand of musical infotainment.
The critically acclaimed cabaret duo are making a welcome return to the live forum with the announcement of a brand new tour entitled Frisky & Mannish's Pop Lab, their first new show since 2014!
The tour is preceded by a month-long run at the prestigious Spiegeltent Palais Du Variete at the Assembly George Square Gardens. This tour, that sees a return to the basics with just the two of them and a piano, starts on 20th September at Bridport's Art Centre and culminates on 26th October at Stockton's Arc.
Frisky & Mannish are officially Pop PhDs, fully qualified to conduct scientific analyses of the molecular intersections between every pop song ever. For the first time, you are invited into their Pop Lab to peek down the microscope at all their latest research projects. Have they found an effective vaccine for the contagious Tropical House virus sweeping through the pop world? Who is the latest to benefit from their 80s RnB Conservation Program? How exactly were F&M directly responsible for ground-breaking experiments that led to the resurgence of Rick Astley in our lives? (commonly known as Rick-Rolling).
Brush up on your Pop Periodic Table with the mad scientists themselves, and perhaps you too will be able to address problematic equations, like just how can Coldplay be so popular even though everyone you ask says they hate them? Science, people. Science.
Their previous Edinburgh runs all sold out - School of Pop, The College Years, PopCentrePlus and Extra-Curricular Activities. These International jetsetters have also performed shows across the globe from London's Shepherd's Bush Empire to Sydney Opera House from New York to New Zealand, Germany to Switzerland, Singapore to Hong Kong... Their many festival appearances including award winning shows at the Adelaide and Brighton Festivals as well Glastonbury, Latitude, Bestival, T in the Park, Southbank Centre's Udderbelly Festival and the London Wonderground!
Frisky & Mannish are pioneers of "popmusicy-seriocomic-mashparodic-stereophonic-LOUD-vaudevillian-sketchcabaret-throwbackcurrent-oldfangled-newfashioned-bapsbotty-infotainment." They have been heard all over radio (BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music) and television (BBC2 and 3), on YouTube and have their own up coming Podcast.
