Last year saw a very healthy resurgence of acclaimed sketch comedy, including several shows among the big award nominees, and this year is looking equally promising. Here are 20 to watch out for.Laugh Out London, 9th July 2015
Critically acclaimed comedy actress and writer Anna Morris, brings her most loved Bridezilla character, Georgina Francis, to a highly anticipated climax at this year's fringe: she's finally getting married. In Edinburgh. The star of her viral web series, Georgina's Wedding Blogs, will invite members of the public to attend one of her 22 wedding rehearsals, and help make it PERFECT for the big day on 31st August in Edinburgh Castle.
The rehearsals will take place every day at The Voodoo Rooms.
It's Got To Be Perfect is a high energy, semi-improvised show in which anything can, and will happen. Georgina is on the verge of a wedding-related breakdown. Can the audience help her hold it together? With shambolic attempts at entertaining her guests, outrageous wedding plans, ridiculous rules, crazy commands and audience members roped into playing the most important wedding roles, culminating in a shocking finale, this show promises to be like nothing else on the fringe.
Nothing will get in the way, of Georgina's perfect day...
Last year the critically acclaimed comedy actress and writer Anna Morris burst onto our screens as the face of ITV2's brand new hit comedy reality show, Bad Bridesmaid. Spotted by TV Execs in her viral web series about a sloaney Bridezilla - Georgina's Wedding Blogs - Morris was the perfect choice to front the hit show.
And now she returns to the fringe with a unique and interactive wedding show, after the success of last year's sell-out Underbelly show, Would Like to Thank, for which she received a plethora of 4-star reviews, toured the UK and was hotly tipped as the next big character comedy star.
After gigging the character for 3 years, gathering a following on the comedy circuit and making a viral web series, Morris brings her engaged Bridezilla character to a climax: she's finally getting married. In Edinburgh... And what better way to make sure everything is perfect, than to rehearse as many times as possible, using the audience as fill-in guests and relatives?!
