To say that young and enthusiastic comedian Phil Mann has a penchant for learning everything and everything would be a huge understatement. Give him a question or even a rough area of discussion and Mann will spill out every single piece of information he has filed and stored away in his mind that is any way relevant to the topic/question at hand. It’s a bit full-on but rather impressive at the same time.
The good thing is that he doesn’t just stand for an hour and feed random information to the audience. Instead, he breaks up his show into different sections, from going out of his way to answer that all important question, ‘How much wood would a wood chuck chuck...?’, to inviting audience members onstage to help him break a new world record. He also took on the ambitious task answering as many as possible of the questions given to him by previous audience members in a basket of postcards. Examples include but were not limited to: ‘Is a Jaffa Cake a cake or a biscuit?’ and ‘Is this the real life or is this just fantasy?’
From his show it is clear that Mann is pretty much the ultimate Know-It-All; there seems to be no question he doesn’t at least have a semi-convincing answer for. He’s obviously given a lot of time and research to his show - some might say too much. However, he does it so that you don’t have to and you can rest assured that you’ll leave his show having learnt something new.
