Edinburgh Preview: Bec Hill

Bec Hill

Last year Australian comic Bec Hill (picture by Steve Ullathorne) set out to perform an award-winning show at the Festival. She felt she had to as she had drunkenly told former Superman Dean Cain that she was an award-winning comic. This alcohol-fuelled way of motivating herself seemed to work. Hill picked up the inaugural Barry Award for Best Show, voted for by other comedians. She also won a Three Weeks Editor's Award for her children's show with Tom Goodliffe. Bec And Tom's Awesome Laundry.

As far as we know Hill hasn’t been talking to any heart-throbs in bars lately so there is less pressure this year, but great things are still expected from this rising star. Hill is very much a multi-tasker. She does whimsy, puns, cute D-I-Y animations and much, much more. There was even some low-impact audience participation in last year’s show. This year’s show is called Caught On Tape and is about regret. Well, one regret in particular that haunts her. But there are no spoilers here. You will have to trot along to see what it is all about. 

At the Gilded Balloon until August 31. Tickets here.
