What an honour it was to be in the company of this supremo diva. What this woman doesn't know about writing a hit song or a musical is quite a lot. The audience was in hysterics from start to finish. Celebrates everything that was wrong about the 1980s. A late night treat not to be missed.

This is the best comedy I have seen this year on the Fringe! This woman is hilarious. Her wacky material is unique lending itself to the smaller audience perfectly. Definitely will be on our list for next year! We both laughed throughout with tears running down our faces. If you have a late night space go and see this one. You won’t be disappointed.

Wow this show was a complete surprise! A friend brought me along last night, I'm a child of the 80s (born 82...but still feel like I remember a lot) and this really brought back a lot of great memories. Oh and the performance is really brilliant, so many, so many great jokes, great commitment to her character, and she really knows how to work the room. Go fill it up, this is the most fun you'll have in Bunker 2 this year!!

My 2 friends and I saw this show on a whim and we had a complete blast. Yasmine was hilariously dry and had us eating out of her hand, it's a glorious show and deserves a huge audience!

Don't call it a comeback because Yasmine Day never went away. ...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 90 days ago

If character comedy tickles your funny bone then look no further than An Audience With Yasmine Day at Pleasance Courtyard. Quirky gags and belly laughs come thick and fast, with a wide-eyed enthusiasm (that at times teeters on the brink of deranged) for her humble back catalogue of ‘hits’, Yasmine...
