Glasgow Cabaret Festival presents

Frisky and Mannish in Pop Centre Plus

Fri 14 - Sat 15 Oct 2011 | 7.30pm | £14/£12 + bf

The third show from sell-out cult cabaret duo Frisky and Mannish, Pop Centre Plus, at the Arches, Glasgow on 14th-15th October.

Everyone wants a career in pop, and if The Saturdays can do it, then, by God, so can you. After rigorous education at the School Of Pop, and intellectual training during The College Years, it’s time to move out of your parents’ house and get a f**king job. Meticulous analysis of your skills and strengths will reveal your optimum career-path. Are you a Bieber? Maybe more of a Cher? Or just The Wanted? If you don’t sign on, you will never know.

Fresh from its world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe 2011, the indefinable, unstoppable cult cabaret duo Frisky and Mannish bring the third installment in their mission of musical education to the Arches.

Following the sell-out, box-office-smashing success of their previous shows School of Pop (2009) and The College Years (2010), their latest offering, Pop Centre Plus, is a careers advisory service for young pop hopefuls. Utilising Frisky and Mannish’s patented five-prong career-path classification system, it features motivational case studies (Madonna), popular trend application (N-Dubz), and identification of useful skill-sets (Cheryl Cole).

Mashing together musical theatre, cabaret, sketch show and comedy with a burning love for pop music, Frisky and Mannish have performed all over the world, from extensive tours of the UK to the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Sydney Opera House and Singapore. Already nominated for numerous awards, they are renowned for their Christmas shows at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End, as well as their summer residencies at the udderBELLY on the South Bank.

Duration: 45 mins
For performance on Fri 14th please enter through Argyle Street
