Fringe Review: Tash York’s Happy Hour

The Trash Queen of Cabaret, Tash York, is set to thrill you almost as much as a half price wine list.

Not a moment is wasted in this happiest of high (and low)-class hours!

If happiness is a choice, as Tash York proclaims, then follow her lead for an hour of positivity and cheeky adults-only fun.

With a stunning voice that can croon, swoon and belt out a long-held tune, Victoria’s “Trash Queen of Cabaret” is more than ably backed up by the Red Wines, June Bag (Matt Hadgraft) and Vino Fonteyn (Vivian Fonteyn), two outstanding drag queens in big red hair and matching talent.

This trio of fabulous artists are joined by a three-piece band for a comedy show of music, stories, and some wacky costumes that switch between classy and…well… not so classy.

York herself is a bundle of joy on stage, spinning tales of living through the world’s longest lockdown and singing about the same, right alongside songs about masturbation and a host of both original and reworked numbers. She improvises lyrics and raps, interspersed with some fun repartee with the Red Wines. The boys in red get their time in the spotlight and prove that they each have the chops to command the stage too.

From the opening moment to meeting the stars outside after the show, Tash York’s Happy Hour brings the happiness with plenty of love to spare. The talent on stage is sensational, the timing, songs and subject matter keep the laughs rolling, and not a moment is wasted in this happiest of high (and low)-class hours!
