An Evening with Bosom Buddies - Edinburgh Fringe 2019 Review (Bosom Buddies)

Okay - I'm mostly a theatre reviewer. But this was great.

Britain's Got Talent finalists "Bosom Buddies" are two Drag Queens with the most incredible voices. Female sounding, convincing voices.

They did an hour's set of a combination of comedy and music, themed around "Divas".

Going through the divas they chose, who were Karen Carpenter, Bonnie Tyler, Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, Adele, ABBA, Eva Cassidy and Judy Garland, along with Freddie Mercury, they personified and dressed as every single one of these flawlessly. It was funny - it's always funny when a man dresses up as a woman for comedy purposes and does comedy, but I didn't really have time to laugh as my jaw was on the floor because of their drop-dead-incredible voices.

The particular highlights for me were Bonnie Tyler and ABBA. You could go, close your eyes, listen to the music, and genuinely not know that they are men. I'm still in shock.

I don't have much else to say on this - it was so much fun, it's just not what I usually review. But that's not a bad thing.

Verdict:  ★★★★

"An Evening with Bosom Buddies" runs until the end of the Fringe at Paradise in Augustines (Studio), 23.10.
