My friend had been to see Tina T'urner Tea Lady each year at the Fringe and knew we'd enjoy - he wasn't wrong! Tracey is absolutely hilarious, the sheer energy she brings to the show is amazing and her impersonations/characterisations are perfection.

There's Tina with her occasional warbles and leg touching demands, Fanny the braying nightmare motivational speaker (we've all had to sit through an away day led by one of these idiots I'm sure!), the delightfully simpering Ed Cheerup and a deliciously needy Audrey Heartburn to finish off.

Book tickets in advance so you don't miss out on this simply marvelous show and if you wear mascara, I'd recommend a waterproof one as you will cry with laughter!

Six stars out of five - thank you Tracey for one of the best shows I've ever seen at the Fringe.

A visit to the Ed Fringe is surely not complete without joining in with the riot of laughter to be enjoyed at Frankenstein’s - courtesy of Tracy Collins and her brilliant array of characters, each unique and loveable in their own right. Except her Fanny. Her Fanny is not loveable, don’t believe the promotion! She is a ghastly, dreadful type of character but we all know a Fanny like her - the portrayal of Fanny Legup is wonderfully funny!

Tracey is a beautifully gifted performer - no show seems to run altogether smoothly and then you get to enjoy her skills at improvisation and one-off gags. She is a very talented, tactile artist who clearly enjoys what she is doing and the audience benefit greatly and feed off this, being part of the show. No spoiler alert necessary!

High Praise indeed but it is richly deserved - enjoy the show! Still in doubt? Search online and see just what a high regard the woman and her show are held in!

Tina T’urner Tea Lady and Freaks! is a celebration of showbiz and the surreal. Tracey Collins is a natural born comedian and it is great to see new characters being developed.
