Press & Reviews

Student Newspaper

★★★★ "possibly one of the most original acts at the Fringe this year [...] another incredible slice of entertainment."

Broadway Baby

★★★★ "Our feisty host Laurie Black looks like a character from Sin City, which is a compliment [...] Laurie Black was sassy, funny and, above all, a talented musician."

Tema / Weekend Notes

★★★★ "Just when you thought you'd seen it all, Laurie surprises you with her tantalizing craftsmanship of performing arts, coupled with her eloquent pianist skills that leave you in a state of zen."

"Laurie is a musical box of surprises, once the handle is cranked you don’t quite know what might come out [...] showing us she can rock a keyboard with every appendage."


"Pint-sized vixen Laurie Black turns the heat up as she hit the stage of the glorious Spiegel Zelt."


"A mixture of NIN, Tim Minchin and a camped up cabaret show"
