ED2012 Comedy Review: Frisky and Mannish – 
Extra-Curricular Activities (Phil McIntyre Entertainments by arrangement with United Agents)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Five stars doesn’t begin to justify how amazingly talented Frisky and Mannish are. The Fringe sensations don’t just parody pop songs in a fantastically witty fashion; they dance, perform hilarious sketches, wear eccentric costumes and deliver vocals that will send a chill down your spine (Frisky certainly has some pipes!). The pop educators delve into different genres of music and put their own quirky mark on them. Frisky and Mannish are like chameleons, able to impersonate renowned artists such as the Bee Gees, and sing in different styles, from opera to grime. Frisky and Mannish are the King and Queen of the Fringe Festival, and their show deserved the standing ovation and rapturous applause that it received at the end.

Assembly Hall, 1-26 Aug (not 20, 21, 22), 7.30pm
tw rating 5/5 | [Emma Obank]
