Voices in Your Head 4 Star **** - One4Review

Last Fringe Deborah Frances-White initially presented this late night comedy treat and is recreating the spectacle once again as she ably leads some of the best comics around Edinburgh through an hour of entertainment that is an absolute treat.
Ms Frances-White allocates props to the audience members to be delivered to the unsuspected performers while she plays the Voice of God by issuing instructions from off stage disembodied voice and giving them situations to create as they go.
It is really funny to see these ‘victims’ not only having to improvise ,with the props but also strive to obey ‘The Almighty’ rather than have free rein of their actions.
The line up of victims varies but on the night I attended Tiffany Stevenson, Thom Tuck, Will Franken and Phill Jupitus were on duty, an excellent line up I’m sure you would agree
The audience loved it and laugher was free flowing throughout the entire show as Deborah weaved situations for them and kept them all on their toes by adding to their scenarios as they played them. It was a really refreshing idea, well executed and one that should certainly not be missed.
