Harriet Kemsley – Puppy Fat (Live Nation)

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015

Harriet Kemsley

There are some clever lines sprinkled throughout Kemsley’s debut hour, in which she lists her worries and the amusing events she has encountered. There is a flavour of innocence to her delivery, and she comes across as very likeable, especially when the show takes a shocking turn towards the final third. That said, the show itself doesn’t feel consistent, and several segments end abruptly with the most tentative of links to move the show along. This can often be the case with debut hours, though, and her audience interaction was suitable when called upon. Kemsley is a fresh voice that shows promise, and it will be interesting to see how she develops this for her next hour.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
