Edinburgh Fringe get ready for Claire McKinley!

Meet Claire, as one of our top Benefit Event Co-ordinators, Claire has the task of primping any situation pretty. Claire started her Benefit Cosmetics life at the young age of 17 in Debenhams Glasgow. As her passion for the brand grew, she was promoted to the Account Manager of Debenhams Silverburn. Now working for the Marketing Department, Claire has one aim, and one aim only, to beautify the UK and make them look and feel fabulous the Benefit way… and that she does!

Traveling up and down the country Claire’s must have ‘handbag heros’ are: they’re real & posietint! “They last morning to night and you never need to reapply, unless you want to add a little drama!”

Claire’s most recent task is to bring the Benefit experience to Edinburgh Fringe with a little help from the fabulous Funny Women. Look no further for all the gossip:

This August, Funny Women, in association with Benefit Cosmetics, brings its first ever Funny Women Pop Up Fringe to the Edinburgh Festival! The event will take place at Le Monde Hotel, in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town on George Street, from Friday 16th August to Sunday 25th August, with a preview day on Thursday 15th August.

Funny Women is proud to host some of the best of female stand up shows currently on the circuit, from Barbara Nice in Mrs. Nice, to Viv Groskop’s hilarious autobiographical account of performing 100 shows in 100 days. Shows at the Funny Women Pop Up Fringe don’t stop at comedy; festival goers can enjoy comedy dramas, panels, showcases, and line-up shows, comedy workshops and two Funny Women Awards semi-finals. 2012 Funny Women Award winners and finalists are also bringing their shows to the Pop Up Fringe, including Gabby BestSooz Kempner, and Leanne Davis!

All events will take place in Le Monde Hotel’s Shanghai Club Room, a popular venue for cocktail lovers with an equally impressive menu. Funny Women ticket holders will receive a 10% discount on all food and drink purchases. There will even be bespoke Funny Women cocktails to make the nights (and days!) go with an extra humorous swing.
