Edinburgh Preview Shows with Lisanne Fridsma and Mel Byron
Prior to Edinburgh, comedians, Lisanne Fridsma and Mel Byron, present their new solo shows. They promise an uplifting evening of humorous self-deprecating storytelling, horoscopes and Cary Grant.
Old Movies Saved My Life -Sometimes the best education comes from the most unexpected places. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, Mel Byron learnt everything she knows from films of the 30s and 40s. Everything about life, frocks and, especially, love. Whilst her schoolmates snuck into Burnley’s night clubs – underage – she dreamt of drinking champagne on a luxury liner with Cary Grant. Join Mel for an affectionate look at the films that shaped her teenage years, and the years beyond.
