Bright Lights (Léonie Kate Higgins)

By | Published on Friday 2 August 2013

Léonie Kate Higgins is a natural solo performer, bringing charm and energy to her Fringe show ‘Bright Lights’. The setting is Léonie’s last day at the office before she escapes to pursue fame as a singer, and sees her indulging in anxious day dreaming in which her future in music is disastrous. Many might think the mindless boredom of the office has been done to death in comedy, especially in recent television shows, yet if they give this a chance, they won’t be disappointed. Léonie gives a personal performance, showcasing a talent for singing, engaging the audience and bringing to life those incidental characters around her. Keep an eye out for the part where she uses a telephone and lamp to stand in for studio recorder Kenny and manager Dave Fish.

C nova, until 26 Aug (not 1, 12) 3.15pm.
