ABOUT THE SHOW
Edinburgh’s ‘Secret’ Vaudeville is a night of schmoozing, cocktailing, bopping and bedazzling amidst an extravagant carnivalesque show involving a wide assortment of performance-arts including: magic, character comedy, sketch, stand-up, improv, cabaret, dance, mini-plays, monologue, acrobatics, clowning, political ranting, male impersonation, female impersonation, more political ranting (this is usually provided by the audience – which is great because I don’t have to pay them), video art, ventriloquism, impressionism (not Claude Monet – or any of those guys – maybe Rory Rembrandt – come on, it’s almost an anagram), hoopla, contortionism, mime, physical theatre and a good old dose of audience participation (you have been warned!).
It’s the worst kept secret in Edinburgh – spread it!
There is also a social aspect to this club night for people who want to make new friends, find love or just pick someone new to stalk. We have a Cocktail Hour at twilight, random audience games dispersed throughout the evening, and a discothèque (yes, I am reclaiming that word) which lingers longingly and lovingly into the night and has been known to continue long after sunup and stumble on into Sunday late afternoon…
Cancel Monday is all I’m saying!
This unique ‘occurrence’ is destined to be one of the finest affairs in the Edinburgh social calendar – held on the last Saturday of every month.
Hosted by strumpet and cocktail-quaffer, Keara Murphy (Yes, I’m talking about myself in the third person again, this really has to stop) – Scotland’s 9th Most Eligible Woman (Yes, I’m still single), Scotland’s 5th funniest woman (Who ARE these other strumpets?) star of BBC Radio Scotland’s character-comedy show, The Shark’s Mouth (Yes, I wrote and performed it all by myself!) and due to appear in a brand new BBC1 sitcom for CBBCs (that’s definitely a secret, I’ve signed something).
My brand new sketch show is currently in production and will air on BBC Radio Scotland on Saturday 4th October at 12.30pm:
Mistresss MacKenzie and Friends
The List once said of me “She’s Eddie Izzard with less make up and more Glasgow” which I think was due to a dream-sequence routine I did about Lorraine Kelly being mistaken for Grace Kelly in the Hitchcock film Dial ‘M’ for Murder whereupon the strangler is revealed to be an evil Emu on the loose following the untimely aerial death of Rod Hull as a vehicle for me to roll out a few impressions. Props were involved. Far too many props! Far, far too many props!
I’m bringing them back!
That’s enough about me for now! Over to YOU! So, what do you think of me?
Back to the show: I will be joined by my loveliest, favouritest most dangerous daring darlings of the world of smoke & mirrors from across the spectrum of the performance arts.
(WARNING: some of us are actually on The Spectrum!)
This is an exclusive club open to everybody, ie; ‘the finest movers and shakers in Scotland’ (The Scotsman), their friends, their families, a guy I once met at the bus stop who had a nice dog, and some people who live dangerously close to Leith!
Remember, it’s a secret! Tell everyone!
Seating is strictly limited to 80 guests, so get in there sharpish or be left stranded on Hope Street
crying from your lack of hope.
LATE BAR UNTIL 3AM
Dress code: VAUDEVILLE!

THE COLOUR HAM
“They take magic, comedy and mentalism, destroy it and rearrange it in a way that just hasn’t been done before. Comedy is the new rock and roll folks and this band are on the verge of something great“
“One of the highlights of the Fringe“
“They will take your breath away, hide it and then make it appear in someone else’s pocket“
Delighted to announce that Carey Marx will be opening up the show for us on September 27th, as part of our COMEDY section, with highlights fresh from his Edinburgh Fringe show, Intensive Carey
“Marx’s humour has always been tinged with mischievous darkness, and now he’s got really edgy, personal subject matter to discuss, he’s going to make the best of it. Sharp, sweet, cheeky, cynical, romantic and rude as ever!”
