Cal Wilson – It Could Have Been Me (Token Events)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

With wigs, neck braces, Billy Joel and a few more wigs, Cal Wilson takes a journey through the versions of herself she could have been had her life turned out differently. Multiple characters grace the stage, occasionally even at the same time, but unfortunately they all felt stereotypical and one-dimensional. For me, the main issue with the show was the format: Wilson jumped from brief stand-up routines into sketches, pausing everything for a couple of one liners, and so the whole thing felt jumbled, with no real rhythm or flow. That being said, the crowd seemed to really enjoy it, laughing in all the right places and eager to participate all that they could.

Gilded Balloon, until 24 Aug.
