Lili La Scala: Another [email protected]£ing Variety Show

Will we ever tire of Lili La Scala? Only time will tell because we're nowhere near yet.

Lili La Scala: Another F!@£ing Variety Show

This time, two-time Voice's Pick of the Edinburgh Fringe award winner, Lili treated us to circus acts Cate Great and Zach & Viggo, a capella group The Magnets, magicians Griffin & Jones, and fellow cabarati Elsie Diamond and Tigress.

Filled with the some of the best audience interaction at the Fringe, lots of glitz and glamour as well as a great deal of mess, AFVS returns packing out the King Dome every night. Her show is hilarious, dangerous, beautiful and altogether impressive. If you like your humour risqué, charming and naughty, too, this is the show for you.

This year she adds a tribute to David Bowie. Avid fans have rubbished the attempts of well-established musicians to pay tribute. La Scala's was understated and tasteful.

Zach & Viggo proved to be witty and inventive without any props or lighting – just themselves. The Magnets were simply electric. Griffin and Jones wowed the audience with a simple and low-tech card trick. Diamond and Tigress were wild and excellent in very different ways.

Once again, AFVS' lady with golden taste does not disappoint, she wows.

    I'm so glad you gave her 5 stars too! Was beginning to worry my minor infatuation was clouding my judgement...
    I definitely agree that the Bowie cover was brilliant. Beautiful, emotive and understated, as you said!

    You know the infatuation is shared! She takes up too many of my positive adjectives.
