Katerina Vrana: Feta With The Queen

Katerina Vrana’s multinational show is the kind of comedy gold that makes the Free Fringe all the more worthwhile. A gigantic-haired Greek living in Britain, Vrana’s hilarious hour long slot is built on differences between the two cultures to much comedic effect...
