Lisa Pulman: Everything’s Coming Up Roses: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2016
Since 2004 singer and actress Lisa Pulman has been a third of cabaret comedy group Fascinating Aida alongside Adele Anderson and Dillie Keane. Twice, I have seen the group perform brilliantly satirical songs whether it be a celebration of funerals and a classical ditty about dogging, the lyrics are reminiscent of the great Victoria Wood and their style of performance made them stand out with superb choreography and vigour.
In 2016, Pulman gave a solo show at the Fringe called Everything’s Coming Up Roses. The show delivered several classic songs including Neil Diamond’s You Don’t Bring Me Flowers and Tip Toe Through the Tulips and was a tribute to her music and comedy roots using laughter, emotion and endless charm. Pullman was a consummate professional with an amazing voice and a wonderful performer.
