Edinburgh Festival: Funny Black Women on the Edge

The Independent Culture
Angie Le Mar is the brains behind this raucous hour of comedy. She is supported by Verna Francis (a great singing voice), Yvette Rochester Duncan (oozing sassy humour), and Tracey Mass Linsday (the least assured). One of the best sketches sees two bored white girls (check out those wigs) running a 'Black Soul' record label, encouraging acts to 'soften the reggae so's everyone can enjoy it'. But it's Le Mar, as herself, offering stand- up advice, and as Gladys Knight's has-been American friend, who takes the biscuit.

Gilded Balloon (venue 38) 223 Cowgate (031-226 2151). 4pm to 3 Sept
