Lucy Porter – Me Time (Lucy Porter)

By | Published on Tuesday 5 August 2014

Do you know what a bedside beaker is used for? Go find out from Lucy Porter. Appearing in her tenth solo show, she has a fond festival following, resulting here in a very full house. Porter manages to be simultaneously charming, relaxed, and self-deprecating (all extremely desirable traits for a comedian!) and it all contributes to a natural and entertaining production. Recounting humorous stories from her life with animation and affection, her various impressions really bring the past to life. Though perhaps a bit rushed at the end and lacking in those side-splitting moments, this is a smooth, continuously engaging performance. With enjoyment guaranteed, Lucy Porter is that woman you just want to be friends with.

The Stand, until 10 Aug.
