Lady Rizo

Lady Rizo has quickly become a darling of the Edinburgh Fringe. In three short years, she's now a must-see act and it's easy to see why. She's funny, sexy, smart, dangerous and daring. As she takes to the stage and reveals her beautiful, figure hugging dress she declares that the Edinburgh is her greatest love affair; a month long whirlwind that she can't give up although she does admit to seeing other cities on the side.

Rizo is a true diva, not in the sense that she's fabulous and fierce - which she is in spades - but in that she has a unique voice and style all of her own.

This is her most personal show to date as she shares tales of love lost, found and lost again interweaved with soaring vocals and gutter humour. Particular highlights include a cover of the Carpenters’ Close to You mashed up with Pure Imagination and her incredible finale number written by Rizo with her multi talented musical accompanist, Yair Evnine.

Rizo is a true diva, not in the sense that she's fabulous and fierce - which she is in spades - but in that she has a unique voice and style all of her own. When she sings, I can't help but realise that no-one sounds like Lady Rizo and it's likely that no-one ever will. This puts her in the same category as Streisand, Holiday, Franklin, Minnelli and those other incredible women who were one-of-a-kind.

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
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.
