Description

Friday Night Sinner! is a one-woman, horror-comedy musical about a Jewish, sexually repressed, newly married maniac (stick to what you know). This deluded, narcissistic, unsatisfied occasionally violent woman has delusions of grandeur and wants to become the biggest star in the universe – or at least in Borehamwood – and spills her guts out to her guests over a highly unconventional Friday night dinner. There will be twists and turns, gruesome deaths and comedy at its darkest and most horrifying. 'Magnificently insane. Five stars!' (List). 'Sheer audacious lunacy' (Chortle.co.uk). Malcolm Hardee Award winner.

The worst show I've seen this fringe, which actually is a compliment, since there's been few bad ones, but also im sure Gigi will see it as compliment because everything she presented on stage was try hard and affected.
The show is loud, awkward, with milion obscure or irrelevant references, full of screaming and unfunny jokes.

We saw this show after a good write up in the paper and we were not disappointed. This show is so sublimely manic, weird and brilliant. We left totally exhausted. If you go to fringe to see something original, you can’t go past Gigi.

This sort of show is what the fringe was made for! It’s shocking and bold and so so funny. Candy has the most incredible voice and her companion on the piano is the strongest man on the fringe (didn’t crack up once!). I see a bright future for these two. One to watch if you’re up for something weird, wonderful and completely original!

Chortle (3.5/5 stars) 107 days ago

A small Edinburgh basement is nowhere near enough to contain Candy Gigi. She has a powerful, intense voice and uses it like she’s playing Madison Square Garden without any amplification. She probably could, too. ...

The F Word 110 days ago

The character of Gigi is delusional, swings wildly between charming and uncontrolled, sometimes even verging on violent. The audience never quite know what Gigi will do next, and to see such a big and unapologetically unstable woman character is as thrilling as it is shocking. Gigi’s voice is incredible, and fills the room to the rafters, but the visceral quality of the character – from biting raw onions to spitting gherkins at the front row – breaks boundaries through the shock humour.

Chaotic and messy semi-musical about a bored housewife and her warped plans for fame...

You may try to dissect the contents of that twisted hour, but its joyful, psychotic alchemy is better experienced live. In the meantime, I’m setting up a support group for any and all attendees.

Wow. Just, wow. I realise that is not a particularly helpful response to a show. ...

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 119 days ago

Sometimes the Edinburgh Fringe leaves you lost for words. Candi Gigi certainly does. By the end of the hour you will be blinking madly trying to work out what unholy autobiographical mess has just been hurled at you. A sinful mix of music and comedy, this is intense, strange stuff....

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 119 days ago

Wow. Just, wow. I realise that is not a particularly helpful response to a show. But I guarantee it will be yours when you watch the extraordinarily talented Candy Gigi power through the story of a doomed Borehamwood housewife (and murdering psychopath) who just wants to be a star.
