The Dreadfuls bounced all over Edinburgh yesterday, clocking up four appearances (that's two over par): in addition to Aeneas Faversham at the Underbelly and ShamWagon at the Pleasance, there were rapid bursts of ShamWagon at the Fringe launch party and Faversham at the Bongo Club!
The Cabaret Stage at the Fringe launch had us all chewing our boots backstage - the audience was lapping up 4 Poofs and a Piano and we weren't at all sure how well a serving of ShamWag would go down. But some high-energy improv won them over and a jolly time was had by all.
A full hour of ShamWagon and a short trip down the road from Pleasance later and the Dreadfuls were waiting to go on as the last act at the Bongo Club. After a little backstage japery the cabaret crowd received two of Faversham's finest sketches with the respect and admiration they deserved. And then home.
The road to glory is paved with hard work. And bear masks.
