Caroline Rhea (Gilded Balloon)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2013

Caroline Rhea is back at the Fringe after her last stint in 2010, and it’s clear that she knows her audience well. Poking gentle fun at the city of Edinburgh and offering some great treats for fans of  ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’, Rhea is clearly in her element. The entire routine is uncompromisingly and thrillingly personal and feels well-adapted for a UK audience. Rhea takes on an almost Bridget Jones-esque persona and the audience immediately warm to her, enjoying her stories of unintentionally putting her foot in it. There’s  a real genuine quality to the show, which only makes proceedings all the more enjoyable.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 22 Aug, 8.15pm.
