Review – Comic Strip

Open your tattered, dog-eared Fringe guide and you’ll see there is far more comedy in the Festival than anything else… But we must all remember that we can have a bit of slap with our tickle, and tickling our funny bone is as good a reason as any to also catch some high quality burlesque.

Review – BAZINGA! Nerdlesque Nights

The idea behind Nerdlesque is that nerd culture meets burlesque performance, and there were plenty of tributes to Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and even Predator. Unfortunately, the segues between acts were far from seamless, and this was a show that showed it stitching.

Review – True Story.

True Story is a completely original cabaret piece based on strange but true tales collected from all round the world. From a vengeful dentist to a kid that dreams of mythical creatures, Ruth Wilkin compiles these wacky and wonderful stories into delightful cabaret ditties.

Review – Bel Canto Bowie

Something about this analogy of Bowie as a literal lord and saviour will hold a strong appeal for anyone who has at some point in their lives experienced a Bowie fixation.
