Now it’s time for our second visit to the show that we think about all year round. It’s Spank! hosted by the irrepressibly brilliant Abigoliah Schamaun and the amazingly wonderful James Loveridge at Belly Dancer @ Underbelly, Cowgate, at midnight on the night of Wednesday 23rd. Here’s the blurb: “Spank! returns for an incredible 14th year with sexy hosts, awesome comedians and gratuitous nudity. With the most exciting comedy and cabaret on the Fringe, don’t miss the ‘best wild night out’ (Scotland on Sunday) at the festival!”
This will be the first time we’ve seen a Spank on a Wednesday night, but it always gets a great crowd no matter which night you go. Check back around 3am (or maybe early on Thursday morning) to see who were the guests, who got naked and how much fun we had. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.
Tonight’s Spank (you love it) was hosted by regular James, and from Monday night, Eleanor. Eight excellent acts included Sister Mary Macarthur doing songs from the shows, Ross and Josh interviewing a T-Rex, Archie Maddocks doing some brilliant material, Robin Boot, whom we had seen earlier in the year in Northampton, giving is his musical comedy, and the very funny Mark Nelson whom some of the audience didn’t like at all. But I did!!
