Very first show I went to this year. Delightful start to the day. Lanessa is very welcoming and talented with great comic timing - a natural performer. Wonderful pianism and a beautiful voice. Regina Spektor vibes.

The Lanessa Show is the absolute perfect way to start your day. The hour long musical improv is a spectacular blend of hilarity and sincerity. In one moment she had me keeling over with laughter and in the next I was in awe of the spell her voice cast. Her ability to transition, with improv, from funny to heartfelt is why you must see this show before it’s too late!

The Lanessa Show is a whimsical, engaging hour of improvised songs and chat. Lanessa gets to know her audience and their problems, then improvises a song to solve whatever issues they have. At the show I went to, this ranged from worries about moving house to partners who don't do the dishes. Her keyboard improvising skills are particularly impressive as she creates new melodies from scratch. Everyone in the audience is included and you really learn about your fellow audience members!

A beautiful show by a beautiful talented lady. It’s early but it’s exactly what you need at 10.50am. Lanessa takes all your Edinburgh fringe stressses and worries and turns them into charming, funny songs, we left feeling so peaceful and happy. 100% would recommend - a must see! This girl deserves huge audiences.

I saw this show this morning. What a blast. Lanessa is such a talented performer, a brilliant musician and improviser. One of the best shows for me at the Fringe so far. Go see it!

We had a great time early Sunday morning with Lanessa who was on great form. If you have a problem go along, it will be solved in song it might be an early show but it was a great start to our day. Susie felt so much better about her issues with the adult magic show and needing to find a toilet.
