The Hamiltons – High Jinks With The Hamiltons! (Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

Christine Hamilton arrives on-stage, a feather boa draped around her shoulders, followed by husband Neil who is already opening a bottle of fizz. It is easy to mistake the whole affair for ‘Carry On Chat Show’. Every day, the Hamiltons invite a selection of fellow Fringe participants to discuss their shows. In fact, it’s a good job the guests are there, as with every glass of bubbly, the Hamiltons become increasingly clueless. The result is chaotic and deliciously camp, cumulating in a rousing chorus of ‘Land of Hope of Glory’ for which the audience are invited to join in. You may leave after an hour feeling slightly bewildered. You will also definitely leave feeling tickled by the entertainment.

Udderbelly’s Pasture, 3 – 28 Aug (not 15), 12.45pm (1.45pm), £9.50 – £11.50, fpp 85
