Diary of a Dating Addict

Maddy Anholt is funny, witty and, much to her dismay, single and rapidly approaching 30. This show looks at some of her exploits in the year after she joined the internet dating scene, and though its a seemingly generic storyline for the 21st century, Anholt approaches her topic with charming originality and ease. She excellently portrays some of the more interesting men found during her social experiment, including an obnoxious coke-sniffing trader, a nervous Australian, a body builder and a nineteen-year-old rapper – this is where we discover that this woman can freestyle! She has the whole crowd laughing, saying aloud the thoughts everyone has in their head. A fun, relaxed and lighthearted stand-up, call her a “social scientist…without the qualifications”.

Gilded Balloon, until 31 Aug.
