Time Traveller (Sarah Hendrickx / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

To describe this show as an atypical stand-up experience would be a bit of a stretch. The nature of Hendrickx’s delivery and demeanour is more akin that of a story-teller, who occasionally punctuates their stories with moments of wittiness. She has a natural charisma that really makes you want to listen to her, however, at some points, it was as though the comedy was getting lost amongst the sometimes overly-anecdotal nature of the show; meanwhile an over-reliance on banter with certain audience members may have proved somewhat alienating to everyone else. Nevertheless, her musings on mental health were comically heartfelt and brutally honest, and to be perfectly blunt, she could easily be considered the thinking-person’s Sarah Millican.

Dragonfly, until 24 Aug, 2.00pm.
