LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE LONDA AS LIMASSOL’S UNIQUE BOUTIQUE HOTEL HOSTS CRAZY DOUBLE ACT, FREYA SLIPPER AND LIZ BLACK, WINNERS OF 2010 FUNNY WOMEN AWARDS, IN A SPECIAL ONE NIGHT ONLY PERFORMANCE ON THURSDAY 27 OCTOBER 2011.
Just when you thought all was calm at the Londa following September’s sell out ‘Funny Woman’ shows, Limassol’s chic boutique hotel is preparing to host another night of chaos on Thursday 27 October, this time featuring the UK’s wild sketch comedy duo, Freya Slipper and Liz Black, winners of the 2010 Funny Women Awards.
The couple’s quick rise to fame was inevitable following the rave reviews they earned in their 2009 debut show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, “superlative talent” and “a very exciting prospect indeed” just two of the many notices showered on them. Their performances at the Fringe festival followed their great success with Edinburgh University’s acclaimed ad lib comedy troupe, The Improverts, whose loud, fast-moving sketch routines gave audiences absolutely no idea what was coming, in a show where the next wonderfully surreal change of direction kept everyone on their toes.
Their shows range from ‘the silly to under-stated to darkly comic’. The female duo fill their show with quick-witted banter, comedy songs, and clever characters, revealing ingenious wit and invaluable lessons in life. The talented couple is regularly featured on UK television and they’re in constant demand to perform at comedy festivals abroad, drawing crowds everywhere they go.
General Manager of the Londa, Jochen Niemann comments “It is an exciting prospect to offer such young, new talent the chance to perform for a totally different audience. Limassol is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and welcomes quality comedy. That is why we are proud to host the Funny Women comedy series here at the Londa. Together with the show’s sponsor, M.Y. Bunkers, we are offering a great night’s entertainment to our guests. And I am sure the girls will enjoy their performance and well deserved prize of a week’s stay with us here at the Londa”.
There will be no cover charge for this show however, donations will be welcomed on the night. To book your ticket to see Freya Slipper and Liz Black perform on Thursday 27 October, please contact Mrs Andia Zamba on: + 357 25 865 511. The show will begin at 8.30pm. Reservations are essential.
