The Omagh Laugh’s Back team have brought some outstanding talent to the town over the years, but parhaps there has been none more talented than Abandoman.
For those unaware of this musical comedy genius, you are in for a treat when he returns to the town for a gig in Bogan’s on Saturday, May 26.
London-based Dubliner Rob Broderick, AKA Abandoman, claims to be ‘Ireland’s finest hip hop musical comedian.’ But this is a total understatement of Abandoman’s improvisation talents which led to him being selected as a support act for Ed Sheeran on a recent tour.
Since Abandoman’s first appearance in Omagh, at Daly’s Comedy Club several years ago, he has gone on to win The Hackney Empire New Act of the Year and Best Comedy Newcomer at the Adelaide Fringe.
He has also headlined comedy stages at Glastonbury, Latitude, Electric Picnic, 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 supporting and touring with global pop behemoth Ed Sheeran.
Following on from his three previous sell out performances in Omagh, Chris Bowes from Omagh Laughs Back is delighted to be welcoming Abandoman to one of their stages next Saturday.
He will be performing his latest ‘The Musical In My Mind’ show which fuses hip hop, freestyling and comedy in a beautiful combination that has been described as ‘Flight of The Conchords meets 8 Mile’.
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.
Chris Bowes said, “We are so lucky to be able to have Abandoman back in Omagh considering his recent success. This event has been more than six months in the making and it really is testament to how incredible Omagh audiences are that acts as big as Abandoman keep wanting to come back and perform here.”
Support on the night comes from local Omagh comedian Conor Keys with tickets available to purchase from Bogan’s Bar or online from www.wegottickets.com.
