Undoubtedly the best Irish improvising comedy hip-hop duo around. A huge hit at festivals across the world for very good reason.
The year is 1993. After destroying rural Ireland’s talent show circuit, hip-hop improvisers Abandoman are teetering on the edge of international fame. This is their access-all-areas story: the highs, lows and a cast of characters… that changes every night. This is your chance to be part of Abandoman’s history. Their biggest, most ambitious show ever follows years of touring across the world, and supporting for Ed Sheeran’s major UK tour. This is their Life and Rhymes. ‘Raucous, expansive and relentlessly hilarious’ **** (Times). ‘I’ve yet to see an audience not go nuts’ **** (Fest/i])

The triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, BBC Radio 4 star and cult optimist Josie Long returns to The Stand with an hour of new material and knockabout fun, as she works towards her eighth stand-up show later in the year.
