Direct from sell-out shows in New York, LA, London, Mexico and Provincetown, newcomer Tori Scott celebrates poor life choices and an unconditional love of vodka in her riotous Edinburgh Fringe debut.
Join Tori and her band The Shame Spirals on an audacious musical journey of slurred autobiographical stories and songs she stole from other people.
Desperate to escape Trumpland for a month and be let loose on Scotland, Tori sings and self-deprecates her way through an hour of sassy political commentary and shameless personal adventures.
Through the music of Queen, Lady Gaga, Edith Piaf, Pink and more, she shares her own self-coping mechanism in dealing with her home-country’s ‘life crisis’ and being a female navigating her own way in New York. All of this, with a dirty vodka martini in hand.
The Time Out New York’s ‘Top 10 Cabaret Performer’ has performed several times in London to critical acclaim and has graced the stage of the prestigious New York institute Joe’s Pub at The Public, who are co-producing this show alongside Robin Rayner (producer of Fringe First Award-winning Fabric), for the past five years.
On television, she’s counted to 20 as a singing garbage woman on Sesame Street and dubbed the vocals of a singing hooker on HBO’s Cathouse: The Musical. Her debut album Plan B! was recorded live at Joe’s Pub and released on Chicken Ranch Records last December.
