Jessica Ransom – Unsung Heroes (Phil McIntyre Entertainments by arrangement with Dawn Sedgwick Management)

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011

Buzzing with energy, Jessica Ransom presents us with a plethora of character-based sketches – from the Andy Serkis school of CGI to working out ‘Bounty Hunter’ style, most are guaranteed to raise a laugh. In a media age of celebrity culture, all eyes are focused on public figures, but Ransom wants to turn this situation around. The focus of her show is on the unsung heroes of this world – the IT technicians, dinner ladies and health and safety officers who keep the world going around. Some of the sketches don’t seem to connect with the audience, but the rest make up for these. Leaping from one character to the next, Ransom provides an entertaining hour of jovial comedy.

Pleasance Courtyard, 3 – 29 Aug (not 15), 5.10pm (6.10pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp97.
