FRINGEWORLD 2017 – Late ‘n’ Loose: Amelia Ryan’s Fringe Tease (4 stars)

Review by Laura Money

Are you a night owl? Can’t get enough of FRINGEWORLD 2017 after all of the shows you’ve seen? Not ready for your Fringe-Binge to end? Then you need Late ‘n’ Loose: Amelia Ryan’s Fringe Tease! It’s a classic Variety Night complete with fun-loving, talented host, and the finest picks from around the festival. If you like things late and very loose, you won’t be disappointed.

Ryan is a great host, she gets everyone clapping and singing along and makes sure the audience knows just how loose the night is going to get. Leave your inhibitions at the front door, because Ryan gets you drinking and joining in with the best of them. Several FRINGEWORLD 2017 stars make their appearance at Late ‘n’ Loose so keep your eye out for the line-up – or don’t if you want a surprise! Reuben Kay, Jonny Woo, Shirley Gnome, Matt Tarrant, The Desperettes, Tessa Waters, Joey Page and others all put on a sample of their respective shows.

The night I attended, Reuben Kay slayed with his devilishly delightful Rocky Horror Show vibe and then joined in Ryan’s game. This is what keeps the whole evening going – Ryan playing ‘Never Have I Ever’ with members of the audience. Ryan has a knack for picking the most repressed looking person, who ends up the most badass of all! An audience sing-a-long gets the crowd revved up for Tessa Waters’ unique style of mime-comedy with a heavy focus on audience participation. By the time Shirley Gnome gets up, we are all ready to scream c**t at the top of our lungs!

Late ‘n’ Loose: Amelia Ryan’s Fringe Tease keeps it real – you’ll be up for anything after this show!
