ABANDOMAN'S ROB BRODERICK : THE MUSICAL IN MY MIND
ABANDOMAN'S ROB BRODERICK + NEWSICAL
Saturday 15 July
The Miller Comedy Festival Day 6
Rob is a man with a dream - to write the world's biggest hip hop musical. Join him for a show that's two parts Drake, one part Disney, combining hip hop, comedy and animation.
With poetic flourish, Rob dances between playing the part of introspective rapper, pop culture commentator and all-out musical surrealist.
'The Musical In My Mind' follows years of performing around the world as ' Abandoman', with sell-out shows across Europe, Canada, Australia and Asia, as well as providing the support for Ed Sheeran's first major UK tour.

NEWSICAL : THE IMPROVISED TOPICAL MUSICAL
James Witt (Music Box) and Steve Roe (Hoopla) lead a merry crew of imps through a sequence of quick fire comedy sketches and songs based on the week's news headlines. Based entirely on audience suggestions and completely off-the-cuff; Newsical will have you laughing, cheering and singing along.
Expect epic rap battles between the Tories and the DUP, a love song between The Queen and Jeremy Corbyn or a cockney knees up with Boris Johnson. Newsical always delivers the news in a fresh, fierce and funky way.
With musical direction from Tom Hodge (Colin Mochrie's 'Hyprov: Improv Under Hypnosis') and seasoned comic performers Rhiannon Vivian (The Maydays), Tai Campbell (Left Foot First), Greg Birks (Newsrevue), Jennifer Jordan (Classic Andy) and James Irving (Impromptu Shakespeare).
