Sam Lloyd – Fully Committed (Gilded Balloon in association with Sloat Entertainment and EMX Management)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

Far removed from his other well known character – Ted from ‘Scrubs’ – Sam Lloyd takes the stage as the protagonist of ‘Fully Committed’ – a story about a struggling actor manning the phones in an exclusive restaurant. Thirty six more personalities follow in this one man play by Becky Mode. Lloyd’s versatility shines through as he puts on a different voice for his customers, colleagues and family. He covers accents ranging from French to Indian to New York; both female and male. He reminds me of early Robin Williams as he bounds around the stage putting on faces to match his many voices. He goes through so many transformations you almost forget that this guy is the same person who played the bumbling Ted.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 25 Aug (not 13), 5.45pm.
