Sharron Matthews Superstar: Jesus Thinks I’m Funny (Sharron Matthews)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Not only is Sharron Matthews a superstar, she is a force of nature. Far from her homeland of Ontario, Canada, she has squeezed herself into something black and shiny with feathers on the shoulders, bringing some sparkle to our drizzly Edinburgh evenings. She talks to us about pop-culture, a little of her real life and a bit about the visitation she had which inspired her quest to become an international rock star. Bursting into song with a gorgeous cabaret voice, this comedy character is passionate and strong, if a little rambling, and doesn’t shy away from sexuality or age. By the end, we’re all convinced that we, too, are superstars — through the medium of song, of course.

SpaceCabaret @ 54, 5 – 28 Aug (not 21), 8:05pm (9:10pm), £10.50 – £12.50, fpp150.
