Pelican: Fisk

About Pelican: Fisk

Prepare yourself for an hour of the most surreal and physical style of comedy as critically acclaimed Pelican bring a brand new, mad cap, uplifting and hugely entertaining show to this year’s Fringe.

Formed by ex-Cambridge Footlights Sam Grabiner, Jordan Mitchell and Guy Emanuel, Pelican blend sketch, improvisation and physical theatre to create the finest comedy narratives with a vibrant aesthetic and an infectious energy. Their colourful characters and inventive stagecraft create a whirlwind hour of utterly unique sketch comedy that fuses intelligent, well-crafted plot lines with moments of playfulness, silliness and improvisation.

After meeting as members of the Cambridge Footlights, Pelican went on to train at the prestigious L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier in Paris, and then with the renowned physical comedy company Spymonkey. They collaborated together on theatrical productions STIFF! (Footlights Harry Porter Prize-winner 2014) and Amygdala Wonderland (shortlisted Papatango New Writing Prize 2015) before first heading to the Fringe in 2015. They returned the following year to a sell-out month at the Assembly Roxy, swiftly followed by sell-out London dates and a US tour. They performed last year’s show, The Cat Man Curse, at London’s Vault Festival, Paris Fringe and the Brighton Fringe before garnering excellent reviews in Edinburgh, and will return to London this June for a final run at London’s Soho Theatre.

Directed by Lucy Moss, whose credits include London’s West End’s Six: The Musical and the smash Fringe hit Hot Gay Time Machine, this is inventive comedy that aims to uplift.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Pelican: Fisk are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
