Natasia Demetriou – You’ll Never Have All Of Me (The Invisible Dot Ltd)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

They may appear flip and asinine, but Natasia Demetriou’s characters some live and some pre-recorded hide a deeper point: the silly accents and synthetic wigs subtly deconstructing bad character comedy, asking what makes it funny and constantly drawing attention to our laughter. The characters and script only work because they are delivered by her; in the mouth of anyone else this material would fail. Sometimes it’s the premise and sometimes the delivery that makes each character so funny, but all are united by Demetriou’s supreme ability for titting about, barely hiding a faint smile that shows she knows how ridiculous this all is. And it is ridiculous in the extreme, but joyously, exuberantly enjoyable too.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
