Jessica Fostekew – Moving (PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2013

Laid-back comedienne Jessica Fostekew provided an hour of amusing anecdotes about the trials and tribulations of living with a hoarder, and came armed with some comical diary entries written by her younger self. Never stuck for words, she kept an entertaining monologue flowing smoothly for the full 60 minutes. Fostekew has a welcoming persona, vivacious and funny, and an hour at her stand-up show is comfortable and enjoyable; you definitely won’t come away disappointed, even if it isn’t the kind of show that will stay with you for a long time after you walk out the door. Audience participation is minimal, and so if you fancy comedy you can just relax to instead of having ‘front-row anxiety’, this is a good choice.

The Cabaret Voltaire, until 24 Aug, 5.05pm.
