The students down at ‘The New Current’ offices express their excitement over the fantastic lineup Edcom has provided for this years Edinburgh Fringe.
This year’s Fringe Festival goes from great to it really can not get any better than this. Sitting in our office we get the announcement that made Tom send out one his usual excited yelps and on showing me the email from this years EdCom line up I, for the first time, joined Tom in his yelp. Their line up this year is nothing short of a spectacular offering of some of the greatest comedy performers with one of the highlights being none other than renowned actress Jennifer Coolidge.
This will be Jennifer’s first international show and there is no place like the Edinburgh Fringe to introduce your stand up to one of the biggest and best festivals in the world. Only the other day watching an episode of Fraiser in which Jennifer played the new physiotherapist, Frederica, for Martin, her German accent was a touch of pure genius. And Ms Coolidge is no one trick pony after starring Legally Blonde and as the Stiflers Iconic mother in the American Pie films, as well as Oscar Nominated A Mighty Wind, and Golden Globe Nominated Best In Show, Jennifer has managed to work both in films and TV.
I highly recommend you booking tickets early as this show is destined to become a sold out fringe run!
Her TV Credits include, Kath and Kim, Sex and the City, According to Jim, The Closer, Seinfeld, and Nip/Tuck to name a few. Her comic timing, beauty, and ability is going to make her show at The Fringe 2010 one of the most talked about and in demand.
Also on part of the EdCom roster this year are if.comedy Award Winner David O’Doherty celebrating a decade at the festival with his tenth show, Somewhere Over The David O’Doherty.
Irish-American Des Bishop’s My Dad Was Nearly James Bond, a moving and candid look at his relationship with his former bit-part movie actor father who was diagnosed with lung cancer last year.
The original Veruca Salt in the ’70s film version of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Julie Dawn Cole teaming up with Australian stand-up Matthew Hardy for a curiously true tale of child stardom.
And cult obsession and Cape Town acoustic comedy duo The Brothers Streep, with whip-smart lyrics and blissfully sweet harmonies.
We are really proud to be able to bring you a preview of the EdCom international line up this year and we will be, if time allows, be interviewing Ms Coolridge when she plays the entire run of the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. TNC is also very lucky to be able to get the chance to do our world famous email interviews with other some of the other performers; The Brothers Streep, Aidan Bishop and Maeve Higgins.
