Women Of An Uncertain Age (Flip Webster and Maggie Bourgein)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

This sketch show had the audience chuckling until the very end. Focusing on the lives and problems of older women, it actively involves the audience and the two leading ladies play fantastically off each other. There were some shining moments of brilliance, though some of the jokes were a little bit obvious and there was an overuse of stereotypes at times. The subject of the show also meant that the humour was quite restricted and, as a result, I found some of the sketches a little boring, though the strength of some scenes compensated for the weaker ones. Featuring a pair of dynamic actors, this might make you giggle if you’re of a certain (or uncertain) age.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 26 Aug (not 8, 15, 22), 2.30pm.
