BITTER SOUR: DIVAS
Jun 9 @ 8:00pm – 10:30pm

Well you wanted a twist? Bitter Sour is back once again and this time we’re channeling our inner Divas! Who will reign supreme? will it be the power pop ballads of Britney and Christina? The madness within the minds on the Bush or Bjork? Or the darn right ludicrous behavior of Havisham or Cruella! we shall be exploring all aspects of Diva and what it means to our performers…

Cherry Fakewell! The queen diva of Bitter Sour, she’ll do anything for a twix- one finger not two, Cherry knows a thing or two about being an “it” girl, but where will her Diva inspiration lead her?

Guest co-host for the evening Hans (Head Shoulders Knees and Toes) (Knees and Toes) Euff. Addiction will be busy being a Diva so is handing over for this one to the capable hands of… Hans! but where will his diva side lead him?

Plus special guests…

Daphne the 10 year old! This Queen is taking Brighton by storm. After winning Lip Sync For your Life and performing alongside such talents as Sasha Valour we’re sure shes picked up a thing or two on how to be a diva.

Dick Day! We can’t wait for this one. Prepare to be taken on a journey of the strange and bizarre! They will leave you gagging for more!

And…. Clare Successfully! Clare Successfully is living up to her name, successfully gliding and twirling her way through the Scottish drag scene… and will be making her England debut here with Bitter Sour! Come catch her putting the D in Diva with us.

LOLLY ADEFOPE + ADAM HESS
Jun 14 @ 7:30pm – 10:30pm

A double-bill of Edinburgh comedy previews, from character comic and Taskmaster loser Lolly Adefope, and hyperactive motormouth Adam Hess.

“A comedic character actor who doesn’t stop for breath once, Adefope sweeps between characters seamlessly, creating one-sided dialogues which are fast with the punch lines and all competing for loudest persona on the stage. Adefope may just be one of the best character comedians around. A must-see. ” – BroadwayBaby

“Adam Hess starts at supersonic speed and then accelerates. It takes time to tune in to his distinctive rapidfire delivery but once you do the laughs will keep coming. You might miss a joke because you are sniggering so hard, but never fear, another four will soon come along.” – Evening Standard

Advance tickets £4+b.f. / £7 on the door.
