Here at St Luke’s, one of our favourite stand-up comedians is Juliette Burton. The acclaimed comedy actress and writer performed her Edinburgh show for us back in January, in aid of our Nightshelter for homeless people. And what a night it was!
If you enjoyed that show – or you have yet to sample the delights of Juliette’s docu-comedy style – you now have another chance. This Friday, 27 June at 7.30pm, Juliette will be performing her latest work-in-progress at St Luke’s. She’s currently perfecting a new show called ‘Look At Me’ for this year’s Edinburgh Festival, exploring our relationship with our appearance, and how much we are who we appear to be.
This performance will give Juliette a chance to try out new material on an appreciative audience – and it gives us an insight into how a skilled comedian develops their performances (expect a script in the hand and some experimentation).
Tickets cost just £5 (£2.50 concessions), with proceeds once again going towards St Luke’s Nightshelter. The show is suitable for children aged 12 and over (there may be a few swear words).
