Spring Day: Sushi Souffle – Free (Spring Day / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

“I’m fucked up but I’m not retarded”, exclaims happy-go-lucky comic Spring Day who is quick to address the fact that she suffers from a mild case of cerebral palsy. Almost immediately, she wins the audience over with her infectious smile, adorable personality and genuine humour. Sharing anecdotes from her time spent in Tokyo and Paris (hence the show name), Day discusses a range of topics from language barriers to sex – and sometimes a mixture of the two! – whilst using her own disability as comic fuel. The 30 minutes fly by, much to the audience’s dismay, as Day leaves them wanting more. A definite must-see, if only just to hear her say the word “clitoris” in Japanese.

Laughing Horse at The Hive, 4 – 28 Aug, 7.25pm (7.55pm), free, fpp153.
