Drag artist Marko Vainio of Finland's Got Talent fame, is bringing her renowned Divet Show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe accompanied by his drag dancers. This show is something NEVER seen before in Edinburgh – you get to experience mega-stars of the world in one go, played by ONE MAN in one hour.
Marko Vainio will impersonate well-known international superstars from Adele to Whitney Houston, from Celine Dion to Freddie Mercury. The show is all about miming to a backing record, dressing and acting and dancing, impersonating that character (celebrity). However the TWIST is, that Marko is making exaggerating their mannerisms that people will recognize and find hilarious, not taking celebrities so seriously - highlighting their wonderful talent, but also bringing forward their mannerisms that can be interpreted in a very humorous way. People can see the funny side of taking a slight 'piss' out of these celebrities without ever of course offending them.
Marko has achieved numerous awards in his career and performed together with the biggest stars in his home country. The show has made sold-out tours in Finland and has also visited many European countries.
