Britain’s best-loved comedy cabaret trio, Fascinating Aïda, are celebrating 30 years of their unique brand of entertainment, with a new show called Charm Offensive, which comes to Aberdeen’s Music Hall on Sunday, November 3, as part of a UK tour.
Freshly invigorated by over 10 million YouTube hits for their song, Cheap Flights, Dillie Keane, Adele Anderson and Liza Pulman will present several numbers hot off the press, plus a few old favourites including their infamous anthem to budget travel.
Dillie founded Fascinating Aïda in 1983 (and was joined by key writing partner Adele Anderson in 1984) and since then the group has played in hundreds of theatres in the UK and Ireland, with many London seasons.
They have toured Australia three times, including a month at the Sydney Opera House, and also played New Zealand, San Francisco, New York, Berlin, Kenya, South Africa and Singapore.
As Dillie says: “They’ve never been off the fekking road, and they’re too old to retrain!
“Oh and 30 years . . . who'd have thought that we'd outlive the VHS? Expect topical new songs hot off the press, plus some outrageous old favourites, as Fascinating Aïda continue to grow old disgracefully! "
They have made numerous television appearances and radio recordings, released seven CDs, two videos, an autobiography and a songbook, and have also been nominated for several awards - Perrier (once), Olivier (three nominations) and New York Drama desk (three nominations). Earlier this year they won Best Musical Act in the London Cabaret Awards.
