Sticky Mike's basement is a great intimate venue for showcasing new comedy. Brian Gittins knows this well and continues to bring some of the best names from the alternative circuit to perform in such an intimate space.
This month we welcome you to the world of Ireland’s finest hip hop musical comedian, Rob Broderick, a.k.a. Abandoman.
Using his trademark blend of audience interaction and razor-sharp improvisation, Abandoman will take you on a magical journey, transforming the audience’s likes, loathes and daydreams into hit songs and captivating tales.
Abandoman has previously won Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, Best Comedy Newcomer at the Adelaide Fringe, headlined comedy stages at Glastonbury, Latitude, Reading and Leeds, performed in the house band for Alan Carr's Happy Hour on Channel 4 alongside Craig David, played the part of Dictionary Corner in 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as well as supported and toured with pop behemoth Ed Sheeran.
“An unstoppable force of nature”
“Flight of the Conchords meets 8 mile”
As usual the proceedings will be MC'd badly by Brian Gittins. Plus we have Brian's naughty spots unleashing some of the newest comedy talent there is to offer right now.
'Gittins To Know You' is a marvel of a carefully orchestrated shambles, filled with glee, spontaneity, and a knowledge that there’s nothing else like it. This is the home of oddballs, lunatics, and risks, and the bunker environment suits it. As does the city and the audience, who keep coming back for more of this anarchic joy.' - Latest 7 - 2016
'The world's worst stand up comedian.' - Sussex Argus 2013
