Around The World In 80 Men! – Free (Joanne Jollie)

By | Published on Friday 12 August 2011

In an absolutely jam-packed upstairs room of a pub, Joanne Jollie entertains a receptive crowd with enthralling tales about the various men from her chequered dating history. An eminently likeable lady, she has a fair set of pipes on her; this is amply demonstrated when she illustrates her tales by belting out a number of classic soul and disco hits, alongside three self-written songs. Though the comedy in her act is not particularly original, covering such well-worn subjects as online dating, it is an entertaining, unchallenging show. It’s the kind of show where one can just switch off and let the entertainment wash over you, and sometimes at the Festival, this is exactly what is needed.

Laughing Horse at The Beehive Inn, 4 – 28 Aug, 4.15pm (5.15m), free, fpp8.
