The Vagabonds of Comedy

Drawing from slapstick, vaudeville, impromptu performing and standup, Frank (Imaan) Hadchiti and Fico (Filippo Spreafico) Fellini are The Vagabonds of Comedy, the hosts of an exquisite nonsense variety night with special guests from the world of comedy and music. While sleek Frank is on the saddle, mastering audience interaction and responsible of carrying the show forward, keyboard-novice Fico will try his best to interrupt the show with nonsensical wisdom and poorly rehearsed songs. Chaos often ensues and the spur of the moment becomes king. A unique combination of talent and craziness, and with countless performances around the world (from festivals in Australia, Germany and the UK, to their solo acts in standup and clown across the globe) this incredible duet plays beautifully, having the audience hooting with laughter, leaving with the clear sensation of having witnessed something never seen before.

Imaan 'Frank' Hadchiti is Lebanese in blood, Australian by birth and a self-identified European. A slave for 12 years to his craft, 5 continents later he has successfully achieved the title of 'Vagabond of Comedy'. Also, he is very short. He only points it out to make you feel at ease. Do you feel better?

As seen on The Morning After’ NBC, 'You Can't Ask That’ ABC, ‘Balls of Steel’ Comedy Central, ‘Wilfred’ SBS TV.

"This is a performer at the top of his game"


“Part dirty, part heart-wrenching, part touching and all-exposing''
