A Jealous Lassie's Karma
  • Brighton Fringe

'A Jealous Lassie's Karma' is a collection of mad cap poems, songs, skits and socio-political observations, all performed with linguistic relish, by the 'terrifically energetic' Derek McLuckie. (The Glezga Poof, 2016) Derek morphs from dead Glezga neddy lassie's into Marilyn Monroe's grotesquely glamorous assassin. Using vivid language and outrageous characters, Derek explores squalor, sex, and the gay man's idolatry of dead Hollywood stars: with punky songs he celebrates a broo sanctioned Goff Mum. Derek's work is fast paced, fun packed, campy, slapstick, highkicking, Dadaistic, with undercurrents of Bette Davis and chunks of Dead Monroe thrown into the cultish Judy deep throat Garland mix. Previous work includes: Night Sullied Flesh, Sadie Wan Fags Lucky Bag Bingo, Twisted Night Tales, Touch My Tent Pole, Dear Green Place (BBC Comedy Scotland), Nights at the Circus and Commissioned. Derek appears regularly @Duckie and Latitude "Outstanding funny" The Herald "With this talent, McLuckie's as lucky as as his name." The List. Touch tours available.

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 review 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

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.
