Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Amrou/Glamrou is head diva of the drag troupe Denim.
Following a stint in our Young Company, Amrou/Glamrou has gone on to create a drag super girl group, perform, write and direct on projects across the country and become part of the Soho family.
Amrou/Glamrou first came to our attention when they joined our Soho Theatre Young Company Comedy Stand-Up.
They are also an alumni of our Soho Theatre Young Company Writer’s Lab.
‘Soho Theatre Young Company was invaluable in helping me to learn the skills and techniques to perform stand-up in drag.’Amrou/Glamrou
Amrou/Glamrou founded Denim – a queer drag all-girl pop-group. Denim have been conquering London’s alternative cabaret and queer scenes over the past few years.
In 2017 and 2018 Denim stormed the Edinburgh Festival Fringe garnering a host of rave reviews including five stars in The Scotsman and premiering their new Denim Juniors; a drag show specifically made for children.
Amrou/Glamrou is signed to United Agents as a writer, director and performer.
They have a feature script in development with BBC Films, a drag musical in development with the BFI, and a comedy TV series with Big Talk Productions, Nefertiti.
‘Not only have I developed exponentially as a writer and performer, my networks have expanded and my understanding of comedy/cabaret/theatre has developed leaps and bounds. It has given my drag troupe Denim such wide-reaching opportunities.’Amrou/Glamrou
