Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Grammy Award-winning Lady Rizo returns to Soho Theatre with her trademark titillating humour and soulful, soaring voice in Red, White and Indigo.
Red, White and Indigo. My love-hate relationship with America.
America is a very bad boyfriend but why do I still love him? If we are potentially witnessing the death of the US as we know it, Chanteuse superstar Lady Rizo delivers a deeply personal musical eulogy unpacking the feelings for the country she was born in, cut with her trademark humor, wit and soaring voice. Backed by choice trio featuring acclaimed cellist, guitarist and composer Yair Evnine, Rizo leads us to our own utopian island nation… with no walls, only velvet curtains.
“SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kind-hearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ‘n’ roll.”New York Times

‘Glamour, wit and vocals that will knock you for six.’
‘The woman is a powerhouse…well on her way to becoming cabaret royalty.’
