BIG DADDY & BABY HELEN at SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL
30 August @ 7:30pm BST
USA - 11:30am PST / 2:30pm EST
Australia - Adelaide 4:00am
BIG DADDY & BABY HELEN is part of SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL a brand new online festival and fundraiser presenting the very best of the Fringe stalwarts of theatre, music and comedy, and the best new acts, all performed live from sheds across the country and streamed into people’s homes this August.
For one night only the brilliant Rosie Jones and Helen Bauer come together to bring you BIG DADDY & BABY HELEN.
After a second sellout run at The Edinburgh Fringe festival, ‘Wickedly Funny’ Rosie Jones returns with a brand new show, her first after turning the big 3-0, and she's made one change in her life: she's stopped saying sorry. Packed with unapologetic jokes and a lorra mischief!
“A masterly performer” One 4 Review. As seen on LIVE AT THE APOLLO, 8 OUT OF 10 CATS and Comedy Central's ROAST BATTLE.
Helen is basic, well basic-plus because she is self-aware with it. Last year’s Best Newcomer nominee returns with half an hour about self-confidence, self-esteem and self-care. It’s the year of ‘self’. Taking care of yourself has never been more ‘in’. Inspirational quotes and facemasks are a big industry and, like all her friends, Helen is trying to ‘be the change she wants to see’. From ITV2, BBC Three, Comedy Central and Radio 4. “A personality that will fill a stadium… This girl will not be performing in small venues for much longer” ***** Sunday Express

TELL ME MORE ABOUT SHEDINBURGH
SHEDINBURGH is a programme of live-streamed socially distanced performances from sheds based at either The Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, Soho Theatre in London, or from the homes of those artists unable to travel at this time.
Acts have been asked to revive and reimagine past performances for a shed, rather than a theatre, with minimal staging and with a digital audience. A challenge worthy of the Fringe, our performers are taking on quite the task.
At a time when venues face an uncertain future and artists are struggling SHEDINBURGH will shout loud about the Fringe’s vital role in global culture, celebrate its past successes and breakthrough artists and provide a platform for the talent that would have been on this year.
SHEDINBURGH will take place between 14 August – 5 September with daily events including ‘one night only’ performances from established Fringe favourites, slots for new artists through Open Call Submissions and industry panel discussions.
Featuring shows from Helen Baer, Tim Crouch, Rosie Jones, Adam Kashmiry, Yolanda Mercy, Deborah Frances-White, Gary McNair, Sara Pascoe, Steen Raskopoulos, Jack Rooke, Joe Sellman-Leava, Mark Thomas and more.
