Comedian Rachel Fairburn’s Showgirl is being extended due to popular demand and is heading to Newport’s Riverfront Theatre.
Rachel will be casting her acerbic eye over everything on her Showgirl tour, from your children to her pretentious new alcohol-free life (accurate at time of writing). She’s worried though. Has she mellowed a bit? She carries a lucky crystal now.
Catch her before she disappears to the countryside with only joss sticks and taxidermy for company.
Rachel co-hosts the worldwide smash hit podcast All Killa No Filla alongside Kiri Pritchard-McLean, which has over 250,000 regular listeners and has had several sell-out UK live runs and a US tour to date. On TV, Rachel has appeared on programmes including BBC Presents: Stand Up For Live Comedy (BBC One), Funny Festival Live (BBC Two), Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and Russell Howard Hour (Sky Max).
A staple of the Fringe since 2014, Rachel has performed 6 critically acclaimed solo shows and featured in The Times ‘Best Jokes of the Fringe’ in 2022 and Daily Telegraph’s ‘40 Jokes of the Fringe’ in 2018. Rachel featured in Chortle’s ‘One to Watch’ list in 2020 and picked up the 2019 online content award from Joe.co.uk. She has also been a finalist of several prestigious competitions including Funny Women, City Life Comedian of the Year, the NATYS and English Comedian of the Year.
Rachel Fairburn brings Showgirl to Newport’s Riverfront Theatre on Saturday November 18. For tickets visit the Riverfront website.
