Lucy Hopkins - Powerful Women Are About

19:30pm

A vibrational revolution of being, channeled by a goddess. Part electro-ritual, part theremin-experiment, part light-fantastic. Ultra-conscious comedy by award-winning, internationally-touring, terribly present clown. Come as you are. Leave transformed. 'Hopkins is fantastic' (Guardian). Lucy is also known as Aunty Val in Spencer Jones's Christmas short (Sky TV) and Charlie Chuck's assistant Mary. Her solo show Le Foulard (The Veil) toured the UK (Soho Theatre), Europe and Australia (Blue Room Theatre, MICF, Adelaide Fringe, Brisbane Powerhouse), winning Best Theatre Performer Adelaide Fringe 2013, Prague Fringe Creative Award 2012 and Bedfringe Pick of the Fest 2012.

Bob Slayer: Whatever Next

18:00pm 

Winner: Edinburgh Comedy Award (Reigning Spirit of the Fringe),

Malcolm Hardee, Zeitgeist and Barry Awards.

Bus Driver. Idiot.

 'Maybe not as daft as he looks?' (Guardian).

 

Last Edinburgh Fringe I read the Chilcot Report, inspiring a political re-awakening at a time when I'd much rather be asleep... What started as a gag ended up an award-winning political happening.

What next? A big revelatory ending where we all see the light? That will be as beautiful a surprise to me as anyone. But I'll not stop trying. 

Come and see this award winning idiot premier his new show? What's going to happen? Your guess is as good as ours.
