Amy Howerska – Sasspot (RBM)

Amy Howerska

There’s no getting away from it: even if her tales are as watered down as she leads us to believe, Amy Howerska’s life, and family, are bizarre. She grew up on a sky diving drop-zone, prefers funerals to weddings, and had plenty of near death experiences as a child, much to the amusement of her family. Excerpts from childhood diaries break up the show well, though her high-pitched impressions, funny the first few times, can become a bit grating. On the whole though, this is a fascinating insight into life as a child from a military family. With such an eventful life it’s really a miracle she’s standing on stage for us at all.

Gilded Balloon, until 30 Aug.
