We chat to Abandoman about his forthcoming London gigs – including at the Udderbelly Festival.
What’s the show about?
It’s a freestyle hip-hop comedy show – an improvised performance with improvised songs.
Do you get strange requests?
All the time for freestyle. We did a gig for a business company who asked us to sit in on on their annual meeting and then surmise the minutes in a rap song.
Weirdest show you’ve done?
We did one on a bus at 9am for a stag do. We were told not to tell anyone on the bus that we were entertainers, so people thought we were just a couple of other guys on the stag do. When we started performing, everyone thought we were just really over-eager!
Where did the name come from?
It started at a show at the Brighton Fringe Festival in 2008. I was originally a one-man band – ‘a band of man’ – and it just kind of stuck.
