Best of the Fest 2010: Assembly Hall, Edinburgh, 2010
Loretta Maine is the creation of comedian Pippa Evans. I saw her perform the character at the Best of the Fest showcase at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010. Maine is portrayed as a extremely deranged singer-songwriter and pill-popping, booze-abusing car-crash of a rock star. The act channelled the pitfalls of fame and celebrity in a highly amusing way.
