Juliet Meyers – I’m Not Spartacus! (Juliet Meyers)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2011

She may not be Spartacus but anyone who *Caesar* may also wonder whether Juliet Meyers is an entertaining comedian either. That’s not to say some of her material doesn’t hit the mark, as her pleasing patter engages well with the audience, and some members are even invited on stage to perform a scene from Spartacus itself. Sadly, this is also the main disadvantage with the show – much of the comedy generated comes from the audience’s stories of their attempts to “be Spartacus” either by some form of recent protest or complaining. Whilst the theme works well as a template for the show, it doesn’t make up for the several awkward pauses that sadly give this comedy the thumbs down.

Just The Tonic at The Store, 4 – 28 Aug (not 16), 5.40 pm (6.40pm) £6.00 – £8.00, fpp103.
