Bec Hill – Caught On Tape (Ditto Productions)

Bec Hill

Bec Hill bounces around the stage with an almost childish energy and infectious enthusiasm (it’s no wonder last year’s children’s show was so popular). ‘Caught On Tape’ is based around the theme of regrets, via Bond impressions, fake news reports and some of the worst accents ever performed on stage. This leads to some hilarious ‘drunk regret’ stories, both hers and from people on the internet, who were surprisingly frank about their experiences. It builds to a beautifully poignant ending, and I left far more emotional than I was anticipating from a comedy show. Her handmade flip chart stories and songs are an art form in themselves, the show is worth seeing just for them alone.

Gilded Balloon, until 31 Aug.
