There is no doubt that La Clique is a Fringe legend. Now in its 10th year the show is proving to be as popular as ever with the late evening crowd and is 90 minutes on virtually non-stop action.
The show has no compere as such with the tight band performing all the introductions and keeping the pace going effortlessly while the variety of acts including Scotty the Blue Bunny, Piff the Magic Dragon together with Mr Piffles his Chihuahua, Micheline singing Brel, a roller-skating act, burlesque, a trapeze artist, an aerial strap performer together with dance, acrobalancing amongst others providing a whole cornucopia of entertainment for the standing room only Saturday night crowd.
Set of course in The Famous Spiegeltent to add to the ambiance, and encouragement to use the bar throughout it generated an amazing atmosphere.
This is an experience that should not be missed by anyone. It has taken me a while to test the water, but having done so and found it very much to my liking then I will be back for sure. The only trouble is will there still be tickets available?
