Frisky & Mannish are back! After their 2019 critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe sell out show ‘Pop Lab’ (one of the Top 10 best reviewed shows at the Festival) they are ready to reveal their latest project: PopCorn, a brand-new cinema-themed musical comedy extravaganza celebrating great films!
Like so many, Frisky and Mannish have spent the last 18 months slumped on the couch, wolfing through mail-order snacks and repeat-watching favourite movies. However, unlike the rest of you slobs, F&M were actually tirelessly researching their show!
“We couldn’t stay on enforced hiatus one moment longer! We had to find a way of putting on a new show, for our sanity as well as your entertainment. PopCorn, our good-natured attack on the greatest films of all time, is shaping up to be the most ambitious F&M show to date, so thank the gods that we found ourselves an incredible team of people with actual experience of digital streaming to help us put this together. We’re gonna bring the big screen to you, wherever you are. The only thing we wouldn’t recommend is helping yourself to pic’n’mix – not just yet.”
Part-movie, part-live show, part-parody, part-love letter to cinema – PopCorn is the digital realisation of everything audiences and critics have come to love about Frisky & Mannish. ‘Popcorn’ will be available to stream for ticket holders from 1 – 14 November 2021 and will be filmed at the Lawrence Batley Theatre Huddersfield. Tickets can be booked at thelbt.org and those with tickets will have access to the stream can view as many times as they like for a 48-hour window.
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!
