Bec Hill – Ellipsis (Ditto Productions)

By | Published on Monday 11 August 2014

Bec Hill has written an award-winning comedy show…perhaps. It’s a fun premise for a Fringe performance, and this one-woman variety show certainly displays her wide ranging skills. Careening from rambunctious mime to chatty stand-up to amusing punnery to wonderfully inventive paper puppetry set to music, Hill ensures there is never a dull moment. The bright-eyed creative energy on display is impressive but she is not just a show-off – her exuberant silliness is balanced by an emotional core to her storytelling, unless that really is a ploy to trick comedy award judges… yet, I think not. For fans of chair dancing, paper crafts and free cheese.

Gilded Balloon, until 24 Aug.
