Plant nutrition specialist takes stand up show to Edinburgh Festival

The sales and marketing manager of one of the UK's leading suppliers of plant nutrition products will this month take to the stage at the Edinburgh festival.

Manos Kanellos from Growth Technology is performing a free stand up act at The Hive on Niddry Street on a number of dates throughout the Edinburgh festival which kicked off on Friday 6 August.

Kanellos said:  "As well as working for Growth Technology, stand-up comedy is my hobby. I have been performing around the UK since coming to Britain 17 years ago from Greece. As stand up is a great passion of mine I decided to do an intensive course at the Comedy School in Camden, London."

He continued:  "I really enjoy being in front of a crowd and my act, entitled ‘Manos the Greek’, is based on myths and facts about my homeland. My show is called ‘Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Greece (But Were Afraid To Ask)’ and I’ll be performing every day, except Mondays, from 7.30pm at The Hive in Edinburgh from August 6 until August 29.

"The show is free and I’d love to see some of my friends from the horticultural industry come along if they are going to be at the Festival," he added.

Growth Technology supplies a variety of orchid and houseplant sundries, including nutrient providing Orchid Myst, Houseplant Focus and Olive Focus, as well as growth enhancers to horticultural retailers.
