An Irish duo will hold a comedy performance with a twist next month.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival sell-out act Abandoman are bringing their raucous, expansive and hilarious show in Bristol.

The hip-hop improve comedy act take their hit show on tour.

The duo will create brand new songs and narratives based on the audience’s suggestions, meaning no two shows are the same.

This imaginary narrative spans 20 years and sees the duo’s attempt to make it as a band in the early 1990s.

Not only will the audience witness the highs, lows and scandals but they will form the supporting cast every night.

The group is made up of rapper and comedian Rob Broderick and musician Sam Wilson.

Abandoman will be at the Hen & Chickens, in North Street, at 8.30pm on October 27.

Tickets, priced £13.50, are available from 01179 663143.
