Yorkshire’s finest Myra DuBois has tragically ‘died’ but on the upside, she’s invited you to the greatest funeral you will ever attend.
In terms of audience interaction, Dead Funny is the best show at this year's Fringe.
Deliberately offensive but wickedly funny, the laughs never stop as Myra plays host to her own funeral service with poetry recitals and Myra-fied songs aplenty.
As a drama queen who lives for the attention, there’s no better kind of show for this iconic drag act than her own funeral. She spends the hour honouring her (self-professed) amazing legacy while following a funeral ceremony plan she’s created online via the Universal Life Church. Having chosen a Wiccan service, Myra reads a Pagen Prayer which draws great laughs as she selects members of the audience to help her.
People don’t check themselves in on Facebook at Myra DuBois’ shows, "they mark themselves as safe" she tells the audience. Everyone is at risk of being singled out by DuBois who pulls people into her chaotic show and engages directly with individual audience members using her sharp acid-tongue. There’s a chance you may even leave with sore arms if she selects you to become her ‘prop stand’ for a short segment. In terms of audience interaction, Dead Funny is the best show at this year's Fringe.
If you’re looking for funeral inspiration or simply wanting an hour of non stop belly laughs so hard you’ll probably fall off your stool then Myra DuBois: Dead Funny is the show you need to see.
