Fascinating Aida – Charm Offensive

By | Published on Sunday 31 August 2014

Charmingly offensive indeed. Poking fun at children, cheap airlines and the process of ageing, amongst other things, the hilariously delightful ‘Fascinating Aida’ are back performing at the Edinburgh Fringe to full houses for yet another subsequent year. After watching their highly successful video ‘Cheap Flights’ on YouTube it’s impossible not to want to see them perform live, and they certainly don’t disappoint. Though attracting audiences comprising – and performing material primarily directed towards – a middle aged demographic, the ladies are easy to appreciate at any age. Shockingly clever lyrics, witty banter, and much enthusiasm are just some reasons to attend their show. A talented trio you could easily watch again and again.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug.
