Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
What is the sweatiest you’ve ever been?
When was the hottest you’ve ever felt?
How would you describe your orgasm?
Hello, we’re Ell and Mary.
We’re best friends and ex-girlfriends and we’re bored of playing it cool.
So this is a show about what gets you hot. We asked women and transpeople aged 11 to 97 what makes them sweat, flush, rub and gush. OK, we didn’t ask the 11 year old exactly the same questions.
We made a sweaty verbatim dance party out of their answers.
Following a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Hotter is launching arse-first in your direction. Blushing already?
‘the audience are on their feet and people are hugging those around them, it felt so pure and beautiful…[something] I’ve never seen before in a theatre’.’★★★★★ Theatre Weekly

Evening Standard – Fringe Best New Writing Selection 2018
'A stellar exploration of the body, intimacy and what makes all of us feel hot.'
'The most stunningly beautiful and inspirational live theater show I have seen in a long time.'
'Courageously, profoundly honest.'
'This is what the joy of theatre is all about.'
‘To have a whole audience crying and dancing in the space of five minutes with nothing more than a soundtrack and a beautifully crafted story is what the fringe is all about.’
‘the show is unadulteratedly joyous, but that’s punctuated by moments that overwhelm the audience with emotion… fearless and remarkable.’
‘thoroughly engaging...[an] empowering experience’
