Airnadette (Underbelly Productions)

By | Published on Saturday 24 August 2013

The self-proclaimed “biggest air band in the galaxy” storm Edinburgh for a non-stop hour of pop culture fun. When not rocking out to well-known choruses the band creates a plot, with the dialogue made up entirely of famous film and television quotes. The actors never utter a word from their own mouths, instead dubbing perfectly along with the tape. The acting is hilarious, and though the plot does get confusing and unnecessary at times, it never detracts from the act; half the fun for the audience is wracking their brains to remember who said what. It’s a very clever act, like no other in Edinburgh at the moment. A must-see, particularly for film fans.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug (not 7, 13, 19), 8.50pm.
