Collier And Cox – Single, No Return (Collier And Cox / Free Festival)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

Jenny Collier and Lucy Cox have a theme – being desperate, single women – and a gimmick – talking at the same time. Neither of these do them any favours and serve to make the beginning of their set  rather awkward. Once they settle into their individual sections, however, they seem to find their stride. Cox’s routine is a bit patchy – the desperate woman material is weak but her songs and critique of dating books is much stronger. Collier is more consistent, but never exceeds beyond the level of reasonably amusing. This isn’t a terrible show – you’ll chuckle through most of it – but you won’t find yourself asking Collier or Cox for a second date afterwards.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug, 3.00pm.
