Andy and the Prostitutes - The Musical

Andy and The Prostitutes play one dirty trick by billing their foul-mouthed ditties as a musical but Andy and co. don’t exactly pride themselves on manners.

The London-based band offer a suitably coarse, threadbare story to string together a score that shoots a satirical bullet at every section of the British ‘underclass’ in just shy of forty five minutes. Oh yes, The Prostitutes are thorough in their despicable work. No stereotype is left unturned as they croon loutish lullabies to the shell suit-wearing, benefit-scrounging, estate-dwelling chavs from behind their Blues Brother shades. Light relief between numbers come in the form of toe-curling asides from the two vocalists, who battle for their share of the limelight like a pair of cheeky schoolboys vying for the class’ attention.

The Prostitutes promise to be offensive but one blow too many leaves a sour taste in the mouth, even with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Andy’s tale of prisons, punch-ups and, of course, prostitutes, is just cheeky Fringe promotion for the band and their music. If you can stomach a set in which the lyrics could have been lifted straight from the pages of the Mail then you might just appreciate the Prostitutes as a mismatched bunch of talented musicians.

Andy and the Prostitutes drop all class from their act but could do with clipping the lyrics to avoid disappointing a Fringe clientele. The comedy doesn’t need to come clean, just clever.

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.

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.
