Katia Kvinge presents Karacters (Katia Kvinge / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 15 August 2014

‘Katia Kvinge presents Karacters’ is a cluster of new material that Katia is working on for next year’s Fringe. She is obviously a talented performer with a great knack for comedy characters and stand up, but this show is simply a number of characters cobbled together to see what works. There is no attempt to structure this as a cohesive show, which is explained at the start, but of course this still affects the tenor of the performance. Some characters work better than others and some fall completely flat; her material is well observed in places, yet relies on heavy stereotypes in others. Forty-odd minutes of rough and raw character comedy that is fast paced and delivers some great off-the-cuff one liners, but it’s not yet a fully formed set.

The Globe Bar, until 23 Aug.
