I’m still busy writing… eep!
Tickets for Glitch are now on sale at the Pleasance:
…should you fancy a cheeky little bit of pre-booking!
Preparations for the show are bubbling away nicely. Still lots to do…
I have an image for the show now, kindly designed by Jae who’ll also be designing the rest of my print and a logo for me. Keep your eyes open for this beauty amongst the myriad of posters and flyers:
Don’t think you can miss it!
It seems that I am putting together a last minute how-many-days-are-left?! one woman show for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
I totally missed all the brochure deadlines and I’m not on sale online yet, but for your well kept diaries: the show’s called ‘Glitch‘ and you can find me at the Pleasance Dome from the 20th – 28th of August at 5:30pm.
It’s an anarchic, half-hour visual comedy in the spirit of 2003’s ‘Deeper Underground‘ that lightly skims the mirth-inducing subject of National Security.
More details to follow…
Aside from Glitching I’ve been doing a little bit of filming for a sketch show pilot and I now have a copy of ‘Small Talk‘ on DVD. Looking into getting it online…
I haven’t got out of my pyjamas today and I haven’t eaten heartily in the slightest. I’m taking this as a healthy sign of a project underway. (I have cunningly forgotten my mid afternoon nap…) Onwards and Glitchwards I go!
I’ve done a bit of a mini internet trawl and come across a few online reviews for VEGA$M…
Read The Stage review here
“What looks like the Scissor Sisters’ demented acid cousins present a kitsch Vegas show dripping with camp and loaded with more laughs than a fruit machine full of dogs in hats…”
…the Chortle review here
“Gawkagogo, one of the most distinctive – if not the most distinctive – comedy groups in the country, produce a typically over-the-top and twisted mouthpiece for their imaginative and artistic creations…”
…and what the punters are saying (good and bad!) here.
As well as doing the show and various cabaret gigs ( Robin Ince‘s Book Club, The Odditorium at Spank! and The Vaudeville Cabaret at The Bongo Club) we seem to have ended up performing in one of Arthur Smith‘s famous Edinburgh walks. This year it’s Swan Lake. Very silly and – yesterday – rather rainy, but definitely an experience for all involved – performers, punters and passers-by alike!
Last night we had a standing ovation after the show so I thought that was well worth a mention on here 🙂
Only one review so far by a guy from The Metro who found it wasn’t his cup of tea, but this hasn’t stopped the good vibe being passed around by people who really have enjoyed it…
If you’re in Edinburgh, you can find me wandering around the Pleasance Courtyard of an evening looking something like this:
I’ve been VEGA$M-ing left right and centre for the past couple of weeks. Props and costumes are still being made (and will probably be being made right up until we need to go on stage for our first preview – there are so many!) but the show is shaping up very well indeed. There has been lots of giggling! Yesterday I had possibly the biggest headrush of my life whilst painting some set. Hehe – I’m still covered in paint today! Back off to rehearsals/making stuff this afternoon/evening. Think it’s our last run through tonight before we set off on Friday. Once we’re up and running in Edinburgh I plan to post reviews, or at least links to reviews, on here, if I can nab a computer every so often. Our first performance is a week today…
Great news of the day: looks like I’m set to hit the Edinburgh Festival in a few months time with Brand X’s new show ‘VEGA$M‘!!
From past experience with Brand X I know for a fact that it’s going to be one helluva Summer in every way you can think of!
I’ll post updates as I get them, but for now – check out what you’re in store for here…
