ED2012 Cabaret Review: Tricity Vogue’s Ukulele Cabaret (Laughing Horse Free Festival)
Tricity Vogue’s Ukulele Cabaret Laughing Horse Free Festival A different show each night, this ukulele extravaganza showcases both audience and performer talent. For their third year at the Fringe, Tricity Vogue and her glamorous assistants are staging the ‘Uke of Edinburgh Awards,’ encouraging festival-goers to compete for the chance to strum the ukulele which is situated atop Tricity’s head. Proceedings started and ended with cheerful sing-a-longs of ‘You are my Sunshine’ and ‘Hit the Road Jack’ respectively, and ukes were handed to audience members, who were the judges of the night’s competition. At times the songs about evil cats gave this a resemblance to an over the top Phoebe Buffay concert. Nevertheless, hilarious lyrics, beautiful vocals and witty commentary made this cheesy cabaret at its very best.
Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, 3-26 Aug, 9.30pm.
