“Fleabag” Lives – LIVE! Phoebe Waller-Bridge Has A “LIVE” Performance For Charity!

“Fleabag” Lives! LIVE!

Some terrific news to share about one of the best TV shows I’ve ever seen – “Fleabag” is coming back live – well, the next best thing, live from last year!

Here’s the news:

Show Creator and Star Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s 2019 live theater performance of “Fleabag” is being released online to support a slew of COVID-19 charities!

The show was recorded at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre last year, and since then the show exploded in the US, winning the Emmy Award for outstanding comedy series.

Now, Phoebe is using that success to raise money for charities working hard in the pandemic fight!

71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, Press Room, Microsoft Theatre, Los Angeles, USA – 22 Sep 2019

This live “Fleabag” performance is streaming in the UK and Ireland via Soho Theatre’s On Demand streaming site – and will expand to the U.S. via Amazon Prime Video as well as via Soho Theatre’s service in Australia, New Zealand and Canada on Friday!
As Phoebe Waller-Bridge said:

“I hope this filmed performance of ‘Fleabag’ can help raise money while providing a little theatrical entertainment in these isolated times. Thank you to all our partners and to the creative team who have waived their royalties from this production to raise money for such vital causes in this unbelievably challenging situation. All money raised will support the people throughout our society who are fighting for us on the frontlines and those financially devastated by the crisis, including those in the theatre community. Thank you in advance to those who donate. Now go get into bed with Fleabag. It’s for charity.”

As Deadline.com reported:

The fees from the show, which will cost £4 ($5), will be distributed to charities including The National Emergencies Trust, NHS Charities Together and Acting For Others, as well as the newly launched Fleabag Support Fund, which will distribute grants of £2,500 to freelancers working in the UK theatre industry affected by the crisis. Fundraising support has already started with £356,000 collected from a substantial donation from Phoebe Waller-Bridge and further donations from TodayTix and an anonymous donor. A U.S. charity will be revealed later this week.

Bravo to Phoebe Waller-Bridge for helping raise money for charities designed to help the fight against this pandemic.

It’s also one of the best TV shows EVER – make sure to watch both seasons, since Waller-Bridge has chosen NOT to do additional seasons!

The show will bring a much-needed smile to you face, just as this one will:

“The Kelly Clarkson Show” continues to air shows every weekday, filled with heartwarming moments like this one:
