They say you leave the best until last and this was the last show I watched at Fringe 2019 and it was simply FABULOUS

Alfie Ordinary is very talented performer. He's funny, a fab singer and under all his humour has a very important message to tell

I definitely would like to see one of his shows again

Interactive . Fabulous . Strong Message .

An entertaining and energetic show created and performed by the extraordinarily talented Alfie the Ordinary is something to look forward to in every Fringe event.

Besides the fun and amazing content, the show conveys a strong message that you have to watch for yourself.

The only thing I wished was that a bigger stage and event venue can be provided to showcase Alfie's talent to the fullest.

Alfie is FABULOUSLY funny, talented and a truly likeable character. This show is over far too quickly...we could have stayed for another hour! Highly recommended. This will surely be one of the hits of this year’s Fringe.

A super show. Clever, funny and poignant - really entertaining and original with a spot on message. Highly recommended.

Alfie is lucky enough to be sent to a school for the fabulous and graduates with highest honours. With support from no less than Whitney Houston this is a must-see show. And, yes, some people are Fabulous and we just need to get over it!

This drag prince owns his identity, knows his style and is unashamedly confident in his ability. Alfie jumps in feet first – Help! I Think I Might Be Fabulous is a sparkly skip down a glittery lane. [...] Alfie collectively fosters connectivity within the room, an atmosphere that invites rather than shuns.

There aren’t many drag princes around, much less drag princes like Alfie Ordinary. With a sequinned waistcoat and shorts and a platinum blonde wig, Alfie perhaps wouldn’t be considered ordinary, but that’s exa...

Alfie Ordinary is by no means ordinary, he is fabulously camp and gracious throughout this coming of age story. Dressed in a sparkly waistcoat and shorts with his sparkly backpack and a piano in tow, he relates his story about … Read More ...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 101 days ago

There’s a delightful pantomime-esque quality to Alfie Ordinary, who welcomes us into his world for this hour of song, dance, puppetry and even a spot of gymnastics. The son of a drag queen (a drag prince), Alfie is a perfectly sequinned mash up of Paul O’Grady and Oktoberfest. With a...
