Cariad Lloyd: Lady Cariad’s Characters (Cariad Lloyd / PBH Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

It’s standing-room only to see ‘Lady Cariad’s Characters’, and, from the moment Cariad Lloyd appears on stage, it’s easy to see why. Vivacious and simply fizzing with energy, Lloyd parades before us a side-splitting stream of comic creations. From the eponymous Lady Cariad to loveable mass-murdering transsexual Cockney Sam, Lloyd’s characters are original, brilliantly drawn and hilarious. In case you thought she was a one-trick-pony, Lloyd disproves this by bantering with the audience with witty ease and improvising a gloriously dirty rap based on an audience member called Shirley. She’s achingly funny throughout, and it’s really only a matter of time before Lloyd makes it big. Go and see her now while you can still afford it.

The Voodoo Rooms, 6 – 27 Aug (not 17), 3.55pm (4.55pm), free, fpp54.
