Somewhere between outstanding and outrageous, but definitely 'out there' Livinia Slutford, leaves audiences wrung out, begging for more. Premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe, this new alter ego from comedy cabaret performer Jonathan Hellyer has the voice of an angel and the kind of past even Heidi Fleiss would blush at!
Fabulously filthy, voice like an angel and the sharpest claws in the business. Hoot, howl, snort, snigger, cringe, cry and wince as gorgeously, couture-clad Livinia Slutford leaves good taste in tatters. X-Factor wannabes are left weeping by her astounding vocal versatility - from Aretha and Frank to Lennox and Winehouse and you'll be left begging for more.
Slutty Livin' is akin to some kind of drunken seance where, instead of channelling the voices of the dead, a larger-than-life drag porn star instead becomes a vessel for everyone from Billy Connolly to Elton John with unnerving accuracy and dollops of lascivious, rapier-sharp wit. Not the neatest analogy, but this is a show better experienced than described.
Resplendent in a black lace get-up reminiscent of Cher circa 1988, Livinia Slutford is the comic creation of Jonathan Hellyer, one of the UK's leading gay cabaret performers.
A big-haired porn actress with the voice of an angel and mouth of a docker, she's as sophisticated as Angel Delight and a similarly guilty pleasure. Through a series of lip-licking, eyelash-fluttering episodes not so much dripping in innuendo as drowning in the stuff, Livinia offers the audience a tantalising showcase of her many talents, be they physical, sexual or, as for the most part, vocal.
Hellyer's voice is stunning ; he can switch from belting out Annie Lennox to a silly reworking of an Elton John ballad almost seamlessly. He's witty - skilfully balancing the gleeful, gratuitous filth with incisive satire – andwarm. Not everyone could pull off - or would even attempt - three encores, but such is the audience's affection for Livinia, Hellyer bows and beams his way through to thunderous applause.
Livinia is far from being as fully-formed a character as, say, Chris Green's Tina C, but she's more than mere novelty act. If Hellyer can build on this brilliant start, Livinia Slutford could go down in comedy history.

I agree totally with this comment. The show was fantastic. This guy should be filling the Grand in no time at all. Unbelievably assured performer. The comedy was spot on, the impersonations uncanny and the singing a revelation. So many shows here left me looking at my watch after half an hour, but this was over in a flash. So much variety. Awesome, 5 stars.
I was at the show too and it was fabulous, filthy and utterly wonderful. So refreshing to see a comedy show that breaks the tired old format of stand up. The singing is fantastic and the impersonations are spot on, particularly the Elton John and Billy Connelly.rnWhere has this guy been? He is amazing and the best thing I saw at the Festival
Saw this excellent show on Saturday. The atmosphere was incredible - not least because of the performer himself but also due to the presence of some clear fans dragged up to the eyeballs! An Amy Winehouse lookalike even made it along to the delight of Hellyer. The show was a rollercoaster of mirth - lifting you up and plunging you down. And Livinia clearly has vocal talents that could fill a venue of a much larger size. We heard about this show through word of mouth and didn't see a lot of publicity but this show is well worth seeing - it would be very interesting to keep an eye on what tricks Hellyer has up his wide (wizard's?!) sleeve for the future.
