EDINBURGH 2016 - BWW Review: THE KINSEY SICKS LADY COCKS OF BANG BOYS, Gilded Balloon, 11 August
"Deep down, everybody is a drag queen" is the sentiment we are left with at the end of Lady Cocks of Bang Boys. After an hour with the Kinsey Sicks, never was a truer word spoken. The Kinsey Sicks are a dragapella beauty shop quartet and, as far as I know, the only one of their kind.
Lady Cocks of Bang Boys is a celebration of the past 22 years of their career. The format of the show is that they perform a range of songs from their back catalogue and the audience votes off two songs which won't be featured in the following night's performance. One of the dragapellas took the voting off of her solo particularly hard and the rest of the group mocked her for it. Rachel - I thought your rendition of "Don't Rain On My Buffet" was exquisite, take no notice.
The Kinsey Sicks take a lot of well-known songs and add their own twist to them. So much so, you'll never look at Disney's Aladdin the same way again.. The vocals are excellent, the comedy is perfectly timed and this is one of the most fun nights out you'll have at the Fringe.
Kinsey Sicks: Lady Cocks of Bang Boys runs at the Gilded Balloon until 29 August.
