Pippa Evans (Showstopper star)


Pippa first made a splash on the comedy scene with an incredibly successful Edinburgh Fringe Festival where her debut solo show, Pippa Evans and Other Lonely People, was nominated for the if.comedy Best Newcomer Award 2008.  The show, in which Pippa played a number of different characters, was a hit with audiences and critics alike, with The Scotsman praising her "searing talent as a comic writer, actor and versatile singer" and The Independent citing Pippa as "probably one of the most talented performers at Edinburgh this year."
In 2009 Pippa  returned to Edinburgh with Pippa Evans: Your Evening's Entertainment! and more recently with Loretta Maine: I'm Not Drunk I Just Need To Talk To You in which she unleashed her alter-ego Loretta Maine, a sexy and psychotic American country and western singer-songwriter for a full show of her own. Backed by her band and with an arsenal of hilarious yet catchy songs audiences were once again captivated by Pippa's perfectly realised character comedy. She returned to the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 and 2014 with whole new hours as Loretta Maine
