BEST OF LEICESTER COMEDY FESTIVAL ON TOUR
THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Frisky and Mannish present “School Of Pop”, Mark Olver, Doc Brown and Jim Smallman SUITABLE FOR AGES 14+ RUNNING TIME: 120 MINS INCLUDING INTERVAL The UK's longest running comedy festival picks up its bags and heads across the UK with the freshest and funniest acts around. Frisky and Mannish wowed Edinburgh in 2009 with their critically acclaimed “twisted pop cabaret” act. Don’t miss them as they present the entirety of their hit “School of Pop” show - “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). Having supported Russell Howard on his national tour last year, "cheerful and funny" (The Guardian) Mark Olver is quickly establishing himself as one of the circuit’s best comperes. "Olver has a great story to tell" (The List). Doc Brown was once an underground rapper who worked with, among others De La Soul and Mark Ronson. Now Ben “Doc Brown” Smith is taking the scene by storm with his distinctive brand of hip hop comedy. He "could yet be the Bill Bailey or Tim Minchin of rap." (Chortle). Supported by Jim Smallman, who touches on his odd life, his obsession for knowledge and his downright childish silliness. Frisky and Mannish present “School Of Pop”
