East London's premier rapper of first-world problems, Andy Quirk, and his backup dancer Anna J, invite you to join their crew for fist-pumping therapy tackling the inconsequential irks of modern living mixing up rapid rhymes with a genre busting soundtrack! Unapologetically frivolous fun.

"...delivers with infectious enthusiasm...demolishing any walls of self-consciousness...and he’s even got a backing dancer with moody sass to help build the atmosphere." - Chortle.

"Interaction with the crowd is excellently handled and used to great effect. A great level of showmanship is instantly apparent and the performance space is used in an awesome way in this highly relatable show. The writing is of a very high standard and it translates perfectly from page to stage with superb timing and an ability to switch music genre with ease.​

Andy Quirk's Got First World Problems
Bunbury Magazine: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bunbury Award: Best Use of A Mic Stand 🏆

From the start, this show was different to any I’ve seen so far. Aimed at audiences ages 14+, it is a clean break from many shows in the Fringe that have more adult content. Interaction with the crowd is excellently handled and used to great effect. A great level of showmanship is instantly apparent and the performance spaces is used in an awesome wayin this highly relatable show. The writing is of a very high standard and it translates perfectly from page to stage with superb timing and an ability to switch music genre with ease.

In the relaxed atmosphere of this show, the audience are at ease with the interaction kept at a fun, encouraging and friendly level.

Andy’s partner and on-stage support (Andy’s ‘Crew’) was perfect, not only providing a classic R&B feel but managed the audience effortlessly.
Covering topics from Social Media to DIY, this energetic show may be a little different from other shows you’ll see at the fringe but it is excellent and we thoroughly recommend. Click Here
