Ed: The New, Totally Unofficial, Ginger inclusive Parody Sketch Show 4.5**** - One4Review
one4review | On 10, Aug 2023
A musical comedy sketch show, based on the life of Ed Sheeran, performed by a ginger girl as the lead. I definitely had my reservations before seeing this show, but I needn’t have worried as it’s absolutely brilliant.
This is a proper fringe sketch show, the 3 piece band that blend into the curtains are very good indeed and the performers are really talented. Enthusiastic, energetic and full of glee, they put on one helluva show.
Rosie Parrish who plays Ed, sets the mood brilliantly as this moody ex-choir boy who can sing and write tunes. Many of Ed’s classics are re-worked into comedy classics along with other songs you will recognise. Music School Dropout went down a storm with the very intimate audience.
It’s really funny, it’s current and it’s dynamic. A really enjoyable show to watch. You should definitely be in a bigger venue and be mic’d up as sometimes it was hard to hear. Great audience participation throughout and yea there were quite a few gingers in the audience who had a great time just like the rest of us!
