Review: Abandoman - E4 Udderbelly Festival Southbank London ✭✭✭✭✭

E4 Udderbelly Festival - Southbank London

Friday 11th May: Abandoman are Ireland's answer to Kanye West, albeit in a hilarious fashion. Playing to a sell out crowd in 'The Cow of Love', this hip-hop improv duo - Rob Broderick and James Hancox -  added extra musicians for an hour of top notch music and comedy.

The now infamous 'What's In Your Pocket' song is a blast, a great way to get the audience laughing their socks off. You are asked to hold in the air something odd from your pocket... and with various items gracing the scene from thongs to meerkat dolls, a hip-hop track of never before heard proportions is brewed in magical ways in front of us. Pure genius!

Audience interaction is a huge factor of the show, with the boys finding out more about you, to help with their song making. I've never heard, and I don't think I ever will hear again, a man's name of 'Champagne' playing connect four to a rap song!

This all makes for a truly hilarious hour of fun, great music, fantastic comedy, and overall one of the best nights out in a long time. It's only an hour long, and the time just flies by.

Well done Rob and James, a brilliant show which had me in stitches throughout.
