Catie Wilkins: Chip Off The Odd Block (Corrie McGuire for Objective Talent)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Catie Wilkins’ show is slow paced and tackles a familiar topic, but that is part of its charm. Expressing her fears about turning into her parents, Catie leads the audience through the moments in her life when she has felt like an outcast, largely due to her parents’ logic, that is so ridiculously flawed it never fails to amaze. Running with a topic that a majority of people can associate with, the audience is immediately onside and responds well to both the direct quotes from her Dad’s ludicrous Christmas circulars and the subtleties that allow Catie to tackle issues such as cancer, in a charming manner. Wilkins is a delight and her confidence will undoubtedly grow as the festival progresses.

Udderbelly’s Pasture, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 8.00pm (9.00pm), £8.50 – £10.50, fpp55.
