Celebrating 40 years on the road in 2023, Dillie, Liza and Adèle, Britain’s raciest and sassiest musical cabaret trio, are bringing their brand-new show to Hull City Hall on Sat 21st Oct.
Fascinating Aïda have racked-up millions of internet followers, performed in the world’s most prestigious venues and been showered with awards and plaudits since they sashayed onto the scene back in 1983.
Uniquely charming, with diamond-sharp satire, filthy, hilarious, belligerent, political, poignant and outrageous, this indomitable trio are still the mistresses of their craft. They are nominated for a 2023 CHORTLE Award for their last 50-date tour which began at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2019 and went on to sell-out all over the UK, despite an 18-month pandemic hiatus.
Marking this astonishing 40-year milestone, this new show will feature much-loved favourites and some wicked new songs. If you’ve been delighted by Dogging, sung Cheap Flights to the Ryanair cabin crew or sobbed into your hanky with LOOK MUMMY, NO HANDS, don’t miss the chance to celebrate with these unstoppable performers in their glorious prime!
Musical Director, composer and pianist Michael Roulston will, once again, join Dillie, Liza and Adèle on stage and the show will be directed by Paul Foster.

Dillie Keane founded the group in 1983 (and was joined by key writing partner Adèle Anderson in 1984 and with Soprano Liza Pulman in 2006) and since then they have played in hundreds of theatres in the UK and Ireland, with London seasons at the Donmar Warehouse, Theatre Royal Haymarket, Lyric Hammersmith, Piccadilly, Vaudeville, Garrick, Apollo, Comedy theatres and most recently at the Royal Festival Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank Centre. They have toured Australia three times, including a month at the Sydney Opera House, and played New Zealand, San Francisco, New York, Berlin, Kenya, South Africa and Singapore.
They have made numerous television appearances and radio recordings, released seven CDs, three DVDs, two videos, an autobiography, and a songbook, and have also been nominated for several awards – Perrier (now Dave’s) Comedy Awards (once), Olivier Awards (3 nominations) and New York Drama desk (3 nominations). In 2013 they won Best Musical Act in the London Cabaret Awards.
Despite being around since before the birth of the internet, Fascinating Aida has clocked up over 30 million views on YouTube and counting, and their videos have become viral phenomena multiple times. Cheap Flights is closely followed by Dogging as their most popular Spotify downloads and their incredibly rude Christmas Song is a top performer on Facebook with over 17million impressions and engagement of over 100,000 followers.
