‘A newly discovered comedy icon’ – The Wee Review

‘Wow. Just wow!’ – Scene Alba

Join queer cabaret performer Aidan Sadler as they take you on a journey through their upbringing in a small industrial town set against a backdrop of 80s synth-pop nostalgia and punctuated with world class stand-up comedy.

Hot on the heels of a sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe we’re currently looking for expressions of interest from venues and festivals in the UK and Europe for one off dates from October 2021 or as part of a winter/spring tour starting in 2022.

We’re also seeking opportunities at festivals globally for this show.

About the show

Debuting at Edinburgh Fringe 2021, Tropicana sold out at TheSpaceTriplex’s Jenner Theatre before extending their run. Hit listed by the Scotsman, winner of Best Solo Act at the Scene Alba Magazine Awards and recipient of 9 rave reviews, the show is an easy sell and appeals to a comedy, cabaret and music audience. It’s a welcome addition to any queer programme but is of course accessible to all.

A typical front row in August 2021 included a mix of seasoned cultural attenders, first timers and hen parties. It’s a party show with mass appeal.
