Ahead of this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, we are delighted to bring you a double-bill of hotly-tipped comedy acts that we think will take this year’s festival by storm.
Alice Marshall: The Strike
WINNER of Best Comedy Show at Brighton Fringe 2017
This year's show sees Alice Marshall return with more of her signature weird and wonderful characters, and this time they're transporting you all the way to the fifth dimension. Join bold and brassy Hispanic air stewardess Maria - once dubbed 'the angriest woman in the skies' - as she welcomes the audience on-board for their 50-minute non-stop flight straight into the Twilight Zone.
Shortly after 'take off', the audience experience one hell of a lightning strike, and the plane careers through an unknown universe, throwing up a vast array of bizarre and delightful characters along the way. Forget everything you know about air travel - this is a journey with a difference.
★★★★★ The Fountain "One of my favourite shows at this year's fringe.”
★★★★ Funny Women "The mix of beauty and grotesque is compelling, and her characters repel and delight in equal measure.”
★★★★ The Wee Review "Alice Marshall does character comedy at its rawest"
★★★★★ Short Com | ★★★★ Herald Scotland | ★★★★ Three Weeks | ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
