Radio Star was nominated for Best English language Production and Just For Laugh's Best Comedy at the Montreal Fringe Festival. Watch (but mainly listen) as Tanya O'Debra lends her voice to ten different characters while simultaneously staging silly sound effects in this filthy, filthy, dirty 1940's radio detective spoof. Just like the golden age of radio, only dirtier.
"Side-splittingly hilarious the best one-woman show I've seen" -- Three Weeks, Edinburgh
"Tanya O'Debra's smutty yet classy spoof of 1940s radio drama is the most theatrically accomplished show (writing and performance) I've seen yet at this year's Fringe." -- Montreal Gazette
"Mesmerizing... a true gem and a must-see for all Fringe goers." ***** Charlebois Post
"An absurd cross between John Waters and Raymond ChandlerRadio Star is a raunchy blast" -- Flavorpill NYC
"Clever, original, and unflinchingly funny." --Broadway World
"There can be no doubting O'Debra's talent: she's got a vocal arsenal that puts Saturday Night Live's Kristin Wiig to shame." --New York Press
