Catriona Knox Thinks She’s Hard Enough (in association with United Agents)

By | Published on Thursday 14 August 2014

However much energy you can pack into an hour, its likely not as much as Catriona Knox. Bouncing through a joyful set of character comedy, she gives us such perfectly pitched creations as an austerity-themed television chef and a scathing parody of TED talkers. A standout scene is a dramatisation of the new Prince Georges first birthday, which progresses in quite an unexpected direction. An audience member becomes part of the show (dont sit at the front if you cant deal with consequences!), and the frequency with which they get pulled up becomes a gag in its own right. Knoxs joy in what she does is written all over her face, and its fully deserved. Every hour should be this much fun.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
