Camille O’Sullivan – 10 (Camille O’Sullivan)

By | Published on Monday 11 August 2014

Camille’s tenth Fringe finds her perfectly at home on a stage decorated with fairy lights, candles, a mini disco ball, bunny rabbit lamp, treasure chest and red glittery high heels. During a set as eclectic as the decor, she and her accomplished three piece band sail exuberantly through a stellar selection of covers, including Nick Cave (‘God Is In The House’), Dillie Keane (‘Look Mummy’), David Bowie (‘Moonage Daydream’) and Jacques Brel (‘Amsterdam’). A comedically batty version of Tom Waits’ ‘God’s Away On Business’ proves a sharp contrast to the highlight of the night – a moving, stripped down performance of Radiohead’s ‘True Love Waits’, complete with mesmerising light rays. Unforgettable.
