New Edinburgh Show- Chaos is a Friend of Mine

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

I am very excited to be taking my brand new show to the Edinburgh Fringe in August after a two year break. It’s only a 9 day run as I couldn’t get a babysitter.

CAROLINE MABEY: CHAOS IS A FRIEND OF MINE

2.15pm, Cowgatehead, Sat 9th-Sun 17th August 2014- FREE!

Photo by Idil Sukan at Draw HQ

Here’s the blurb:

When “oddball genius” (Chortle) Caroline Mabey became a mother, she discovered that idiocy and egomania are genetic. Held hostage by her baby, she’s become a victim of Stockholm-or is it Tourettes?- syndrome. Here she bursts out of confinement to delight and traumatise audiences in this thrillingly daft one-woman stand-up fun-blast.

‘Kooky, quirky and delicious’ (Time Out)

‘The slightly deranged offspring of a menage à trois between Vic Reeves, Harry Hill and Floella Benjamin’ (Evening Standard)

‘An Absolute delight to watch. Fantastically ditzy and spectacularly absurd… Leaves you feeling a little bit dizzy and a big bit happy’ (The Skinny)

Here it is on edfringe.com

You can’t buy tickets because it’s FREE!

As part of La Favorita Freestival

2.15pm Cowgatehead, Space 3 (venue 32),

65 Cowgate, Edinburgh EH1 1JW

9-17 August 2014

One Minute Silence at Phoenix Artists Club- Thursday 13th October

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Another chance to see Caroline Mabey’s One Minute Silence, featuring my animated sidekicks Kip the Coffeepot and Mr Skrangles. Together we attempt to train the audience to achieve the mind-bending super-stunt of remaining silent for sixty seconds. It really is unspeakably good. Like this year’s David Blaine.

Come!

Thursday 13th October

Phoenix Artists Club
1 Phoenix St (Corner of Charing Cross Rd)
London
WC2H 8BU
(Nearest Tube Leicester Square/ Tottenham Court Rd)

Doors 7.30, Show 8pm

One Minute Silence at Wilton Tennis Club

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

I’ve been invited to perform my One Minute Silence at Wilton Tennis Club in Wimbledon by the wonderful Terry Oakes, who saw the show in Edinburgh.

And there’s going to be a BUFFET!

It’s all happening on Saturday 8th October: Doors 7pm, Buffet 7.30, Show 8.30.

It seems the tennis fans are super keen and the show has nearly sold out, but there are still a few tickets available here:

BOING!

Edinburgh 2011

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Well, I’m back from doing my One Minute Silence show in Edinburgh and I had lots of fun.

Here are some things said about me in the press:

“An absolute delight to watch. Fantastically ditzy and spectacularly absurd, this meandering whirligig of a show leaves you feeling a little bit dizzy and a big bit happy. A joy to behold.” The Skinny

“Highly Recommended”-Times Festivals

“Truly, Mabey’s dippy mind produces some of the most bewildering and wonderful lines you could hope to topple from a person’s mouth” EdFest Magazine

“Brilliantly Funny… Wonderfully silly… Genuinely inspired” Fringe Guru

“Hints of Will Adamsdale, reminiscent of Greg Davies… entertaining and unique” Chortle

And I was recommended in Time Out’s Top 25 Comedy Shows of Edinburgh 2011


I also did lots of other gigs including this crazy chat show with folklore legend Lorraine Chase:

New Show Title Revealed: Caroline Mabey’s One Minute Silence

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

I know! It’s too exciting. Isn’t it? I’m going wild and taking the ultimate challenge this year in a mind-bending, world record-breaking attempt to be quiet for a bit. Kip the Coffee Pot and Mr Skrangles will be on hand as I utilise all the latest fully scientific super-methods to remain silent for up to sixty seconds. You simply won’t believe your ears.

This year’s David Blaine.

And to scintillate your eyes just a little bit here’s a taste of some of the brilliant photos taken by Idil Sukan at my photoshoot last week.

Thanks to Kevin at Speedyhire in Wandsworth for lending me the manly Road Breaker, and to Mark Allan from the Bollywood Brass Band for the super sousaphone.

MORE LONDON PREVIEWS

Now that I’ve had some photos done, I might as well write a show. Why not help me create the magic by coming to a preview, where you can be part of an elite force or super-audients whose reactions to early versions can determine the outcome of the final piece? Truly a great privilege.
