Aidan Sadler has to be a fringe favourite! Their performances are energetic and unapologetically queer which is so empowering to experience. Having seen Tropicana I didn't know what to expect but this show delivered! Sadler's balance of humour, politics and ridiculously strong vocals make this show a must see!

Absolutely fantastic show, with warmth, humour and fun. I could and would listen to Aidan talk and tell their stories all day, and their singing voice is out of this world. This one is for the queers - go and see it!!!!

Brilliant and original show! Highly recommended. The best voice you'll hear at the Fringe. Breath-taking vocals AND world-class comedy AND genuinely engaging!

This performance was a solid 10/10. Aidan's natural comedic timing, combined with their powerful and heartfelt original songs, created a show that was unforgettable. Whether you're a fan of cabaret or just appreciate exceptional talent, this show is a must-see. Aidan is a true force to be reckoned with in the world of entertainment, and I can't wait to see what they do next.

10/10, I knew Aidan was a must see going in (queer cabaret icon!!) and this show was as brilliant as everything they do. Aidan is effortlessly hilarious in between belting out their funny and heartfelt original — and very queer — ballads. Also if you come to this show you might get a chance at some snogging (the most immersive performance I’ve ever been to!), which really is a dream come true.

Aidan is a accomplished cabaret artist with a superb voice and very funny banter. Having seen him perform Tropicana at the fringe a few years ago I knew we were in for a good show, and he didn't let us down. Opening night was a get your tickets now to avoid disappointment.

MELODY is an all-around entertaining show which has a bit of everything thrown in plus a bit extra on the side. A good solid cabaret show for an evening’s entertainment at the Edinburgh Fringe.
