Frank Skinner’s Credit Crunch: Lyric Theatre, London, 2009
Frank Skinner and Friends: Noel Coward Theatre, London, 2012
Darren Foreman, aka Beardyman, has made a career of making a whole show which utilises his beatbox skills. Foreman creates levels of sound using live looping and various technology to build up the sounds, over which he can then create comedy lyrics.
Every song had its own musical style however it was Foreman’s vocal skill on which the show is based. Foreman also had an amazing ability to make up lyrics on the spot finding the inspiration from the weird and wonderful song titles given to him by the audience.
