The theatre company have travelled to the Big Apple following their appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The move follows numerous requests from American fans who are among more than 300 million people who have viewed the Grannies' dance routines on social media.

The opportunity arose after the performers caught the eye of a talent scout from the Middle East at the Edinburgh Fringe during the summer.

The group travelled to New York on Monday, and have already taken to the streets to join up with their new unusual dance partner.

Local favourite The Naked Cowboy, a busker who performs wearing just a pair of briefs and his guitar, was keen to join up with the Grannies when he learned they were travelling to New York.

Fizzog Jacky Fellows said: ”He sent us an email saying he hoped we would turn up naked too. I don’t think New York would be quite ready to see the Grannies flashing the flesh but hopefully we’ll have a few surprises for them.”

The Fizzogs were able to part finance the trip with donations from their fans during the recent tour of their Black Country Fairy Tale, Ay It.

But they are still needing extra funding should want to contribute or sponsor the project.
