Claudia O'Doherty – Pioneer

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
This quirky Aussie was slowly gaining a loyal, cult following at the Edinburgh Fringe for her quaint, geeky, lo-fi shows ‘Monster of the Deep 3D’ and ‘What is Soil Erosion?’. But at the 2012 festival she hoisted up the comedy ranks after being nominated for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for her super-inventive piece of ‘difficult theatre’ that goes wrong: ‘The Telescope’. Her new show, 'Pioneer', isn't quite as conceptually ambitious, but it's upped the stakes tecnically, with an 'expensive' show sponsored by electronics company Pioneer. It's intriguing, inventive and just the right side of peculiar.
