Full press release
Holly Burn returns to Edinburgh in 2012 with The H Club, a brand new hour of surreal, character comedy and mayhem. In 2008 during her Edinburgh debut Hollywould... But Doesn't Think She'll Bother, Holly marched her audience down West Nicholson Street to the PDSA charity shop. In 2009 we were invited to an intimate soiree in her Edinburgh new town flat for her show At Home With Holly, a year later we were treated to the staging of her own death and rebirth in Living.
This year Holly brings her hilarious H Club to Just the Tonic. This is Holly's very own non-exclusive Private members club and each evening she will take on a variety of guises including the owner of the club and several of the members whilst mingling.
THE H CLUB
Wanna join a private members bar but don't have the money, sense of elite-ism or decent shoes? Then welcome to The H club where you get the chance to kick back and frolic with Holly and Like-minded members in Edinburgh's least exclusive private members club. Doors open 4.40pm. Policy: pretty Lax
Holly has been entertaining audiences with her own distinct and unique style of character comedy for the last five years. As one of the UK's only female surrealists, her highly successful one-woman shows are a hybrid of character, sketch and stand-up. Holly is brave, both as a performer and a writer and she is never afraid to take her audience to a black, dark and dangerous place. This is comedy that breaks all the rules and is most definitely not for the faint hearted, her fearless performances have earned her praise from the critics and her contemporaries alike.
Holly studied under the famous French director and 'Bouffon' teacher Philippe Gaulier. In 2011 she appeared in the London run of the critically acclaimed and Evening Standard Best night out nominated Office Party. She also featured in Mark Watson's award-winning Edinburgh production Hotel and has performed on the BBC's The Wall and Jesting About and ITV's Comedy Cuts. Last May she appeared at The Royal Festival Hall in Stewart Lee's At Last! The 1981 Show.
Holly Burn is a surrealist whose comedy is relentlessly uncompromising, often uncomfortable... but totally unforgettable.
