Laughing Horse’s Funny Fillies – Free (Laughing Horse Comedy and Sajeela Kershi In Association With www.funnyfemales.org.uk)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

Everywhere I hear it said: “the spirit of the Fringe”. People yearn, pine, mourn for it, say it is lost, gone forever, say it’s not to be found anywhere near a £3.80 pint and a note-taking telly commissioner. Where am I to find this spirit? Well, how about in a back room where 50% of the audience are performers who themselves seem to be, well, a little down on their commercial luck? We all sat together on sofas and chatted; one of the acts was clearly a confused stripper who ran off before her act, and there were no male comics doing jokes about wanking. This chill-out evening was easy-going and pleasant: the Fringe spirit lies within the Free Fringe!

The White Horse, 4 – 28 Aug, 11.50pm (12.50am), free, fpp108.
