Susan Murray’s Photo Booth (Susan Murray / The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Finally, here is an observational comic who attaches their craft to a sturdy vehicle. Using the strong conceit of a collector of photo booth photography, Murray comes up with charming diversions that are both funny and fascinating. We’ve all got a collecting habit, whether it be something as dedicated as stamps and autographs or something more low key like the ticket stubs from films; Murray taps into this object based memory reference habit and hooks her audience. Leading us through her life by the different hairstyles she had in photos, the different friends, boyfriends, or random people she has is fascinating. At times touching, but most of the time humorous, this is a definite show to see if you enjoy observational comedy.

The Stand Comedy Club III & IV, 4 – 28 Aug (not 15), 5.55pm (6.55pm), £7.00 – £8.00, fpp156.
