“The funniest political show we’ve seen since Spitting Image” – Boyz Magazine
London’s queen of political lipsync satire and Edinburgh festival 2018 smash hit; Ripley returns to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern with the latest installment of her acclaimed Like A Sturgeon show.
Like A Sturgeon: The Emancipation of Melania Trump will be 100% lipsynced, combining drag, pop and political parodies as Ripley channels the unwilling first lady of the United States, Melania Trump.
From her early modelling career to life in the White House, The Emancipation of Melania Trump is an exploration of the life of the FLOTUS depicted through a twisted pop culture lens. Each act is mixed and recorded by Ripley herself, containing her own vocal impressions, musical parodies, pop-culture mashups and unique brand of ironic humour.
Joining Ripley on stage will be special guests Elle and Rose Garden as Ivanka and Ivana Trump! So expect lots of bad plastic surgery, daddy issues, devil babies, and broken American dreams galore!
Ripley is an acclaimed act and won the 2016 ‘It’s A Knockout’ competition at Halfway to Heaven and was nominated for Best Cabaret Act in the 2017 Boyz Magazine Awards. Her Edinburgh Fringe show is hotly-tipped as one of this year’s must see shows, attracting praise from The Observer, Edinburgh Evening News and Scotsman.
