Frisky and Mannish: Just Too Much

Felicity Fitz Frisky and Hansel Amadeus Mannish are the quintessential Fringe success story. They have spent the last few years going from unknown act on the cabaret circuit to bona fide international stars. Sell out shows and five star reviews are the norm for the phenomenon that is Frisky & Mannish.

There just aren’t enough superlatives to describe the experience of an hour with Frisky & Mannish.

For any act to climb to such heights can only lead to an inevitable failure, a crash and burn of such epic proportions that Lindsey Lohan would suggest taking a step back and Miley would carefully remove her wrecking ball from the room. This is that show and it is wonderful.

It’s difficult to review Just Too Much without spoiling the show’s many wonderful moments so I’ll carefully skim over the plot and avoid referencing any specific jokes or songs and simply say that Frisky and Mannish have created the perfect sequel to their Pop Education Trilogy for their many fans and for those who’ve never had the delight of being schooled in the way of pop by these masters of musical parody.

With fantastic musical references from Beiber to Bette Midler taking in all the very best - and very worst - of pop, musicals, pop culture and fashion there just aren’t enough superlatives to describe the experience of an hour with Frisky & Mannish.

In the first few second of the show, Frisky & Mannish demanded our applause; by the end, they couldn’t stop us.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Acting For Others
Acting for Others provides financial and emotional support to all theatre workers in times of need through the 14 member charities. During the COVID-19 crisis Acting for Others have raised over £600,000 to support theatre workers affected by the pandemic.

The Blurb

Frisky and Mannish are back with a brand new hour, packed tighter than Robin Thicke's crotchal region. Now all grown up (just like Miley and Bieber) their barely-conscious recoupling marks the beginning of a new pop-comedy-mashup-infotainment era. They've been everywhere, from the Edinburgh Fringe to the West End, from BBC Radio 1 to E4, and from Shepherd's Bush Empire to the Sydney Opera House. ‘Superb and uncontrollable’ (Sunday Times). ***** ( ***** (Mail on Sunday). ***** (Adelaide Advertiser).
