Fascinating Aida

Fascinating Aida

The show is performed by 3 very talented performers: Dillie Keane, Adèle Anderson & Liza Pulman

Dillie Keane

Dillie Keane studied music at Trinity College, Dublin, and acting at LAMDA. A burgeoning acting career was hijacked by the success of Fascinating Aïda, which started in 1983 with Marilyn Cutts and Lizzie Richardson.

When Adèle Anderson joined in 1984, she found her great writing partner. When Fascinating Aïda hung up their sequins, ostensibly forever, in 1989, Dillie returned to solo performing in Single Again (1991 - nominated for a Perrier Award) and Citizen Keane (1992), both directed by Nica Burns. Her most recent one woman show, Back With You toured the UK, played Pizza on the Park and the Edinburgh Festival, a West End season at the Arts Theatre and also played at Berlin's premier cabaret venue, the Bar Jeder Vernunft. Acting parts include The Plough and the Stars (West Yorkshire Playhouse); Juno and the Paycock (Leicester Haymarket); Present Laughter (Birmingham Rep); the Dublin premiere of The Vagina Monologues and Charley's Aunt with Eric Sykes.

Recent songwriting credits include Big Night Out at the Little Palace Theatre by Sandi Toksvig, in which she starred in at the Palace Theatre, Watford alongside Sandi and Liza Pulman. Television work includes Pie in the Sky and The Truth About Women. Dillie has also had a column in The Stage for over ten years and has written extensively for newspapers and radio. She had her own page in the prestigious MAIL ON SUNDAY for over two years, and has appeared regularly in the Sony Award nominated show Booked!.

Adèle Anderson

Adèle Anderson is best known as a member of the acclaimed cabaret group Fascinating Aïda and co-writes much of their material with founder member Dillie Keane. Fascinating Aida have played in more than 100 theatres in the UK and Ireland, with London seasons at the Donmar Warehouse, Lyric Hammersmith, Piccadilly, Vaudeville, Garrick, Apollo and Comedy theatres and the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. They have toured Australia three times, including a month at the Sydney Opera House, and also played New Zealand, San Francisco, New York, Berlin, Watamu (Kenya) and Singapore. They have made numerous television appearances and radio recordings, released seven CDs, two videos, an autobiography and a songbook. They have been nominated for the Perrier Award, the Olivier Award (three times) and the New York Drama Desk Award.
