FRINGE IN 30 SECONDS: The Bite Size Show - VIDEO

Claire Cogan will headline at the brand new Buxton Festival Fringe venue The Market Place with her brilliantly observant one-woman comedy, The Bite Size Show.

Claire Cogan has been a professional actress for many years and due to that old chestnut of not many roles around for the ageing and rotund female, she decided to embark down the scary road of creating a one woman comedy show.

The Bite Size Show premiered this year at The Dave’s Comedy Festival.

She says: “I must admit I didn’t expect the audience to laugh at any of it, but they did, so I was keen to have another outing with the show.

“I have never been to the Buxton Fringe before but I have heard such great things about it, this is the next step.

“I sent my video of the show to Sian Dudley, a wonderfully driven woman, who was setting up the new Market Place venue. Sian liked what she saw, and I am really excited and proud to be part of The Market Place’s first ever Buxton Fringe.”

Performances at The Market Place - The Loft will take place on July 18 at 10.30pm and July 19 at 9.15pm.

Tickets, priced £6 (children and concessions £5), are available on the door.
