Gilded Balloon Teviot Nightclub: 3rd – 28th August
Myra Dubois, actress, singer and former barmaid, is set to light up this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe with her debut comedy show Self AdMyra at the Gilded Balloon Nightclub at 9.15pm from the 3rd – 28th August.
Rotherham’s least celebrated daughter will be bringing her unique brand of razor sharp wit and pointed observations, as well as the odd musical number for good measure (her’s is a double). Confused by other acts offering up shows about ‘things’ Myra’s show is all about her favourite subject, herself. Accepting that she is a fan of herself, less an exercise in self-help and more a testimony of ego, she is taking her rightful place amongst her AdMyras.
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.

“A viciously funny attack on decency” The Skinny
“Myra’s control of a room is hypnotic, so endearing that audience members have apparently been known to lay drinks at her feet like tributes to an ancient god” Whats on Stage
