Eleanor Morton – Lollipop (Eleanor Morton)

By | Published on Friday 15 August 2014

Arriving on stage issuing enthusiastic high fives, Eleanor Morton sweeps us along through an hour of conversation around mental health issues, anxiety and social awkwardness. Stories about her therapist and attempts to talk to attractive people are punctuated by humorous songs played on ukulele and keyboard (‘I’m Really Good At The Clubbing’ is particularly good), and she’s unfazed by a series of latecomers crashing in to the small room at the start of her set. Her endearing nature is an excellent counterpoint to her intelligence; a swift aside to some American guests about the Middle East was so sweetly delivered it almost went unnoticed. Go for surreal humour, great songs and free Pringles.

The Stand Comedy Club, until 24 Aug.
