Dressed in sequins, the highest heels and cowboy hat, Tina C takes to stage
In Tina C's 20:20 Vision, it’s her ambition to run for President in the next American elections and 'make America great again'. The show starts when Tina enters the room through the audience, singing and creating a high energy presence, making the audience laugh from the very offset. Dressed in sequins, the highest heels and cowboy hat, Tina C takes to stage and we hear her plans to become the next President in the White House. The show is peppered with well-written satirical songs sung in true country style, including Am I Spending, Am I Breathing? The multi-talented Tina doesn't only sing her songs, she also plays the guitar and piano.
In this politically themed show, Tina sends up Brexit, religion and politics in a way that only a character like this can. Some of her throw away lines are absolutely first class. There were also extremely funny observations about Brighton, which the Brighton Fringe audience completely related to.
Tina C is a captivating, glamorous character whose cheeky non-PC views and capitalist thoughts kept us fully entertained and laughing throughout. The hour show goes by very quickly and the big number for the finale got everyone singing along.
