The world's only improvised, science-based, stand-up/sit-down tea party (with free tea and sweets for all audience members) in which PHIL MANN will answer any conceivable question, as well as remember the answer to any previous question he's been asked in the last 45 editions of the show. What's more, the audience will attempt to break two world records in every single edition of the show.
'A brilliantly comedic creation' (The Scotsman)
Door salesman, youth worker and sex-ed demonstrator, you'd think PHIL MANN would've learnt something by now.
'An enviable flair for comic timing' (Fest)
Appearing at the Fringe for 3 consecutive years, Phil Mann has honed his ability as an 'instant expert.'
'The most obscure of subjects with the most precise of comic timing, had us rolling on the floor laughing and scratching our chins knowingly.' (Annexe)
Taking questions from the audience, he fearlessly answers on everything from prehistoric chat-up lines, homing crustations and Cadbury's Creme Eggs.
'Interesting, surreal, eccentric outpourings of knowledge taken even further into the twilight zone.' (End of Radio)
PHIL MANN has uncovered the supernatural secrets of Rolf Harris, the Roman Empire's great cheese cover-up and attempted to contact aliens. People flocked time and time again to put his incredible powers to the test.
'Intelligent and surprisingly funny, genuinely interesting and delivered with delight and scruffy charm.  Well-timed jokes. Incredibly knowledgeable and charmingly inquisitive '' (Three Weeks)
'Untamed mischief, unpredictable and rampantly chaotic. The architect of his own fortune.' (Matt Trueman, Culture Wars)
Every night PHIL MANN will become an expert in a many various topics of the audience's choosing, having only the 23 hours between shows to ready himself to be able to hold forth at length, answer questions and make you laugh about topics you didn't know existed.
'Hilarious... quite endearing' (The Stage)
'Perfectly timed comedy' (Public Reviews)
Previously running at the Bedlam Theatre, Firestaion Arts Centre Windsor, The Three Sisters Edinburgh, Phil Mann is also part of the incredibly successful improvised comedy group BattleActs! - favourites of the Free Fringe.
'Hyper-energetic, eccentric, very funny. Breathtaking.' (Fringe Review)
'Odd and appealing' (Ian Shuttleworth, Financial Times)
'Splendidly odd. No question is impossible for protean Mann and it is impossible not to warm to him. A unique flavour on the fringe, driven by the direct, committed performer who has a mind as sharp as a critic's nose. His Herculean knowledge is part of the spectacle and the impression and impressiveness of it builds as the hour progresses. A full-flowing genius.' (Fringe Report)
