Pam Ford – Happy In Your Skin? (Pam Ford Comedian / Free Festival)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Pam Ford presents an account of her life, charting her journey from being an unpopular teenager in Australia to a now middle aged divorcee in London. As an uplifting show, it does not fare badly, but as a comedy act Ford doesn’t quite make the cut. Her observations are presented well, but lack the spark necessary to make them truly funny. As a woman on a quest to make her audience – as the show name might suggest – feel more positive in their own skins, she does well, but it’s listed in comedy, and what this show must be judged on, ultimately, is whether it  is truly funny and entertaining. Though it was a perfectly bearable hour, it isn’t one I would return to in a hurry.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, until 25 Aug (not 14), 5.15pm.
