Hannah Gadsby – Mrs Chuckles (EdCom and Dick The Horse)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

I am in love. Who would have thought that someone so casual and relaxed could be so side-achingly hilarious? As Hannah talked about her love of biscuits, her inability to contribute to conversations in social situations, and what she wants her final words to be, everyone in the audience was in hysterics. Hidden talents such as an uncanny Donald Duck impersonation and the ‘throat fart’ only made the audience fall that little bit more in love with her, while stories from her trips to Vietnam and acceptance of her own sexuality were delivered with exceptional comic timing. This show is so good, it should come with a hazard warning because you may actually laugh your arse off.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 4.45pm (5.45pm), £8.00 – £12.00, fpp86.
