Laughing Horse @ Counting House: Ballroom – 3rd – 26th August
After successfully converting most of Edinburgh to become AdMyras, Myra DuBois is back for the rest with her new show DuBois Entendre at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe from the 3rd – 26th August.
The Siren from South Yorkshire’s complaints department has been quite busy this year with Myra having a bad habit of saying one thing when she means another. Myra seeks redemption from those she has wronged. “The devil made me do it” exclaims Myra, but it is her razor sharp wit and acid tongue that’ll make you go see her show.
Having mastered her craft performing to confirmed bachelors and their friends in South London Myra has performed on The John Bishop Show in 2015 and was hand-picked to support Bianca Del Rio for her sell-out run at the Clapham Grand. Myra was a New Act of the Year 2012 Finalist, going on to win a London Cabaret Award in 2013. She was contacted by Tim Rice following a rendition of one of his songs, which he described as ‘definitive’, and invited to perform for him at a private dinner he was hosting in Mayfair.
As a performer she started out at the legendary Madame Jojo’s as an MC for Finger in the Pie Cabaret and starred in the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s annual Christmas Panto’s from 2010-2014. She has performed all over the world including Latitude Festival and being flown out to Seychelles to perform for Saudi Royalty. Her critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut show, Self AdMyra, toured around the UK in 2017 gaining her more fans in each corner of the kingdom.
Gareth Joyner is also performing his new character comedy show Frank Lavender: Fragile Masculinity at Laughing Horse @ The Counting House this year from the 3rd – 26th August at 4.50pm.
