Benidorm Live on stage

Benidorm Live at first look could be a travel show, you know the sort enjoy some Sangria and get holiday offers on the night. Anyone who has enjoyed the TV series since 2007 and thrilled as they won two National Television Awards plus BAFTA nominations however will flock to see the cast on stage. They did not disappoint either reminding me at times when I saw Carry On London on the stage and at last witnesses the screen characters come to life. There are acknowledged parallels here too says writer Derren Litten even with the techniques of the star entrances being staggered to allow the audience the expectation and recognition as they came on.

The Frank Carson Story – I Didn’t Laugh I’d Cry **** 4 stars Mike McCabe has come back to Edinburgh at a much bigger venue with this show. We see the show starting with “Frank Carson” in hospital where the news is announcing that he has been unwell. From this starting point, Mike takes us on a rollercoaster ride of Frank Carson where he was working in Irish Clubs where he “became a cracker”. Mike gives a superb version of “The Comedians” where he made his name on UK Television. He also gave impersonations of Bernard Manning, Charlie Williams and Ken Goodwin with some of their jokes. We were given a taster of his time in ITV’s Saturday children’s show Tiswas and such a wonderful career t

All Aboard for Kelty

Kingdom Theatre Company introduced a very different show to this years Fringe with drama “Kelty Clippie”. The show is based on the story of a bus conductress who has always dreamt of wearing a uniform.
