Tricity Vogue’s Ukulele Cabaret – Free (Tricity Vogue / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Kazoos, ukuleles and a drunken guest comic – who substitutes the obligatory instrument for a dart board which he then proceeds to hang over his torso and encourages people to aim at – make this evening of cabaret a surreal experience. However, with the ‘Uke of Edinburgh’ challenge which sees ukulele players from across the fringe pitted against each other and judged by the audience, this showcase of talent is what the free festival is all about. From the absurd songs on these instruments that lend themselves so well to comedy, performed by the likes of Elliot Mason and Helen Arney, to the sing-along songs that see audience members join in with ukuleles, kazoos or their voice, this show is straightforward fun.

Laughing Horse at The Three Sisters, 4 – 28 Aug (not 5, 12, 13, 19, 26) 9.00pm (9.50pm), free, fpp15.
