Fascinating Aïda – Cheap Flights (Fascinating Aïda)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2011

Cast off your preconceptions of cabaret as stuffy and outdated and prepare to usher in the relevant, modern – and rather cheeky – Fascinating Aïda. With a show based on the name of their viral YouTube hit (check it out now – you will struggle to contain your giggles), this performance boasts their songbook favourite and some new additions. With topics ranging from Osama Bin Laden to orang-utan surrogate mothers, from the recession to religion, it is fitting that the cast declare this show is not ‘for those of a sensitive disposition’. Think the observant, witty nature of Tom Lehrer and the raucous, blunt honesty of ‘Loose Women’ and that’s what is offered by these established Fringe favourites.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug (not 4, 7, 17), 6.45pm (7.45pm), £11.50 – £14.00, fpp10.
