Fascinating Aida’s Liza Pulman spoke to Emma Clarendon ahead of her Streisand show at The Other Palace.
Underbelly’s festive installation Christmas in Leicester Square returns, taking over the central London square from tonight (Friday 10 November 2017) to Sunday 7 January 2018 with a programme of live yuletide entertainment in a pop-up Belgian Spiegeltent.
Liza Pulman, the acclaimed singer and comedienne and one-third of the satirical and much-loved comedy trio Fascinating Aida, brings her third solo show Liza Sings Streisand to London’s Cadogan Hall for one night only next month, hot on the heels of the show’s album release this week. Watch the taster video…
Two thoroughly nice chaps you’d safely take home to mother. Two Cambridge choral scholars and occasionally camp satirists at pains to remind you they’re heterosexual. One a bit shorter and blonder, one a bit like Robert Peston.
The show is much more personal than a Fascinating Aïda show, and though it’s rude in parts, it’s not quite as searingly blue…! I didn’t want it to be “Fascinating Aïda lite” – so it’s not a topical or particularly satirical show.
To coincide with her current tour, Liza Pulman has released an album entitled Liza Pulman Sings Hollywood, and it’s really worth a listen.

Not only is Pulman a magnificently talented singer, she is also a marvellously quick-witted comedienne (hence why she is a member of the hilarious Fascinating Aida).
Liza Pulman is renowned for being a third of the deliciously devilish trio who perform as Fascinating Aida. The resplendent Diva is leaving her cheap flight and Christmas gripes behind her, for now anyway! She’s touring the UK with The Songs of Hollywood and I had the pleasure of chatting with Liza about the show, her career and which of those naughty Fascinating Aida numbers really is her favourite?
What chutzpah! Producer David Johnson’s reaction to a request from ATG, the UK’s largest theatre owning group, for complimentary tickets to his production of Fascinating Aida’s Charm Offensive at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe is extraordinary. It shows the frustration of independent producers feeling the squeeze. I reprint Johnson’s letter to ATG’s Peter Evans in full… And will […]
