Edinburgh, United Kingdom, June 28, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- After enjoying a successful run at this year’s Adelaide Fringe, actress and character comedian, Claire Ford, brings her debut one-woman show, ‘ConsciousMess’, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
So what’s the show about? Claire explains, “It’s about how full our brains are nowadays, you know, useless facts, tangled thoughts, half-remembered conversations… and about how our minds try to make sense of it all.”
In this dynamic comedy show, Claire brings her own ‘ConsciousMess’ to life on stage, through a mix of character comedy, clowning and hilarious audience interaction.
So, come along, join in & meet the strange characters, memories and voices all jostling for position inside her head.
"This show was my fringe wild card, generally character comedy is not my cup of tea but Claire Ford is simply outstanding and has changed my views and opinions on characters, clowning and female acts in general…It is high energy, varied, laugh out loud funny, clever and lots of fun. The modern day clowning of the social consciousness was my favourite, which blended each of Claire’s characters nicely in to an hour of entertainment which you rarely get the chance to experience live. I cannot recommend this enough; see her now before she, or at least one of her characters, climbs into your TV! Brilliant, unique and boundary bending comedy." – Adelaide TalkFringe
