With an infinite repertoire of one-liners, the ingenious and quick-witted Abandoman unapologetically knows how to stir a crowd. In their show Life and Rhymes, stand-up comedian, Rob Broderick, and his musical accomplice, Sam Wilson, take viewers on a wild rollercoaster of razor sharp wit, improvised rap, and snappy hip hop.
Having mastered their famous recipe of diligent planning, remarkable natural talent, and of course, audience engagement, Abandoman has undoubtedly established their stage at the Adelaide Fringe. Heavily relying on audience participation allows for Broderick’s performance to be unique and positively eccentric with every show. Opportunely for the Irish duo, Life and Rhymes has been near sold-out each night, providing for a boundless array of unguarded lyrical subjects. The show develops with a powerful energy as Broderick radiates enough unpredictable energy and invigorating fervor to keep the audience on their toes.
Blending their signature use of audience interaction and refreshing improvisation, Abandoman breathes life into the audience’s pleasures, dislikes, and fantasies through hit songs and extraordinary anecdotes.
