"We have worked with Purple Cactus for several years and they always comes up with the goods. They work hard securing the most suitable act at the best possible price. So much so that we are now working with them on our biggest event ever.” – Specsavers



Winners of both Hackney Empire New Act of the Year 2010 and The Musical Comedy Awards 2010, Abandoman create hilarious musical sketches at lightning speed live in front of their audience. No two gigs are ever the same.

The project sees frontman Rob Broderick and multi-instrumentalist James Hancox reinventing hip hop in a way that appeals to all age groups.

Abandoman are are regular performers on the Now Show and The Vote Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and regular contributors to the Chris Hawkins Breakfast Show (BBC 6 Music).

The group recently sold out their entire 28-day run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where they were also invited to perform alongside Jimmy Carr, John Bishop, Brendan Burns, Rich Fulcher and many others.

Abandoman have played festivals such as Glastonbury, V Festival, Bestival, Latitude, Altitude (in the French Alps) and Rockness, have performed at the 2010 Brits After-party, Daisy Lowes 21st Birthday party and have opened for numerous comedy and music acts (recent acts include Micky Flanagan, on his current UK tour, and DJ Yoda).
