Show details

An accomplished comedy performer Mythical Creature is her second 1 hour Edinburgh show. (**** Fringe Review, Part stand-up, part poet part stylised story telling all hugely entertaining, John Fleming “Highly recommended, go see her”, Phil Jupitus)

What happens when your perfect world ideal fails to materialise?  Angie found her diary from aged 12 and lamented on how her life has turned out pretty differently from the possibility filled pages of her early aspirations. But then these days with social media and online profiles we are constantly inventing myths about ourselves. Join her on a journey of stories, poetry and comedy, Angie reflects on the nature of ambition and failure. Includes new poem, Ode to Aldi.

Praise for Mythical Creature

abflyer1 for social media frontAngie Belcher is a spoken word artist that is just as suited for a comedy night as she is for a poetry event; from the moment Angie takes to the stage every line she delivers is crude, funny and instantly relatable and quite simply fun to watch. She is charming, silly and makes honest and awkward observations that everyone can understand. Angie seamlessly links each poem together with witty remarks about her day and every point during her set you’re either laughing or catching your breath in preparation for the next fit of giggles.” Tara Pilkington, Apples and Snakes 2015

Like Pam Ayres but with attitude and an adult audience” Bristol Evening Post.

“Bloody Marvellous” Kate Copstick.

Funny, crude and incredibly charming” Word of Mouth

The perfect start to the festival…sharp, observational material I could relate to” North East Theatre Guide
