Frisky & Mannish – Musical Comedy Duo | UK
Frisky and Mannish are a comical music duo, formed in London in 2008. Well known for a style of parody that consists of “shrewdly crafted, expertly delivered and rapturously received observations” on pop music, they portray themselves as “pop educators.” They have been called “the mad scientists of pop, mixing unlikely solutions from incompatible artists and distilling entire genres into their separate elements”.
