Penny Arcade

11 Feb 2016

WINNER Scotsman Fringe First 2015
WINNER Herald Angel Award Edinburgh 2015

Penny Arcade is a force of nature and New York’s undisputed queen of the underground. Outrageous and inspirational, Arcade occupies a unique position in the American avant-garde and counterculture movement.

Longing Lasts Longer is her double award-winning Edinburgh show, which turns contemporary stand-up on its head to create a crack in the post-gentrified landscape. Driven by her magnetic rock ‘n’ roll energy, Arcade’s razor-sharp satire is mixed live to euphoric soundscapes inspired by four decades of pop culture. It's a passionate performance anthem where you can think, laugh and dance at the same time.

‘Exhilarating, passionate…A unique voice capturing the zeitgeist of a cultural genocide’
