2 Mouthed Men
7 – 8 April, 7.45pm

They may not be the best beatboxers. They may not be the best sketch comedy duo. But they’re definitely the only two people stupid enough to combine the two. Join Daniel Stanger-Cornwell and James Hawley as they take you on a musical odyssey unlike any other.

How many shows have you seen that combine sock puppets and animal noises with drum and bass? How about RnB songs about bad housemates? Maybe folk music about being drunk?

2 Mouthed Men is a brand-new music-comedy act taking the UK by storm. Managed by Harry Neal and comprised of Daniel Stanger-Cornwell and James Hawley, 2 Mouthed Men create a unique form of comedy unlike anything you’ve seen or heard before. Utilising beatboxing, rap, poetry, guitar, bass and looping, The 2 Mouthed Men Show promises to be a night to remember.
