Lili la Scala: Another F*cking Variety Show (Lee Martin for Gag Reflex)

By | Published on Wednesday 7 August 2013

What Lili wants, Lili gets, and Lili wanted a vibrant selection of Fringe cabaret. The seductive vintage singer warms up the crowd before introducing her first act. Mat Ricardo’s charming personality and classic circus tricks get the assembly howling before Lili returns to deliver another musical number. There’s never a dull moment for the boisterous late night audience as other hysterical acts include ‘Lords of Strut’ a Jedward-esque acrobatic routine and the amusing Boy With Tape On His Face. Headliner Piff the Magic Dragon accompanied by his adorable chihuahua sidekick closed the show to enthusiastic applause. Each performer also has their own show at the Fringe, so these are fabulous tasters. Another F*cking Variety Show’? Yes please, Lili.

Pleasance Dome, until 24 Aug, 11.00pm.
