Alfie is far from ordinary and he wants to tell you why

Hello! Who are you and what will you be doing this Fringe?

My name is Alfie and I'm doing my first ever solo show at Brighton Fringe!!

What’s you show all about?

It's all about being fabulous and proud.

Is this a new show or have you performed it elsewhere?

It's brand new, my first ever solo show!

Are you a seasoned Fringe performer or is this a first time outing for you?

It's my first time, I'm nervous.

What brings you to Brighton? Why did you decide to enter this year’s Fringe?

I've been performing in cabaret for 3 years now and the time felt right to make a show about me and why I exist!

Where will you be performing? (Dates and times please too!)

Help! I Think I Might Be Fabulous is at the Marlborough Theatre at 2pm 14 May and 6pm on 28 May.

If you had to sum up your show in one line what would it be?

FABULOUS, obviously. x

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this article has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
