AUG 29 at 20:00 (40 min) - PAY WHAT YOU WANT via Zoom (TICKETED)
Laughing Horse Online / The Internet - Zoom Show

A couple of years ago Andy Quirk got married, gave up his day job and moved from London to Glossop on the edge of the Peak District. He then turned 40 and has been adapting to the north, and his impending mid-life crisis, ever since. However, instead of buying a sports car and taking up bungee jumping he's written a show of musical parodies dealing with everything from late night retail excursions to unexpected incidents in farmers' fields.

This wild solo comedy show features a beautifully idiotic performer discovering what it means to be a 21st Century Feminist. Strenuously working to improve life for all women, Madame K surrounds herself with Coqs she's rescued, reprogramming them to have better manners, and training them to live up to their full potential. Don't worry, in this performance all Coqs are in cages! ***** EdFringe Review ‘Madame Komondor is doing God's work.' Written and Perfor...
