Chaos And Order – A True Story (Naomi Hefter)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Naomi Hefter returns to the Fringe for another year, this time taking on her first solo show. ‘Chaos and Order’ perfectly demonstrates Hefter’s trademark honesty – she really doesn’t hold anything back. She says exactly what she’s thinking, and the majority of the time this is a definite strength. Undoubtedly a natural comic, all that really lets her down is her lack of patience with the audience – she seems frustrated when things don’t go as they ought to. That said, there really is nothing else to fault with her performance. Her anecdotes are hilarious, all the more so because of her claim that every story is true. It’s not a comfortable comedy (there are awkward moments galore) but that isn’t to say it’s not funny or enjoyable.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 28 Aug (not 16, 17), 5.00pm.
