Bec Hill – Bec By Popular Demand (Innocent Hill and Gilded Balloon)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2013

There is something about Bec Hill that makes her instantly likeable. I don’t know if it was the cheeky little smile as she showed us her unconventional brush with television, but you can tell just how much she enjoys making people laugh. The creative proficiency with which she uses paper puppets, drawings and props throughout the show takes you to a wonderfully childlike state of mind. That’s not to say that this is a children’s show:  in her weird world, she crafts humour out of potentially dark material and presents it in a cheery manner. Combining one liners, storytelling and sketches, this is a great little gem of a show and well worth checking out.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 25 Aug (not 7, 14), 4.00pm.
