Jenny Bede – Don’t Look At Me (Jenny Bede)

Jenny Bede

Jenny Bede’s show is a gleeful, musical romp. She explains aspects of her life through songs and raps, which are smartly written and consistently hilarious. Her melancholy ballad about using emoji in relationships is especially memorable, and you’ll be humming her tunes for the rest of the day. Despite the show’s title, you cannot help but look at Jenny Bede. Her performance is as loveable as it is funny, and her conversational style and down-to-earth persona will make you want to be her best friend. It would be an even more satisfying experience if Bede interacted more with the audience and moved around the stage with greater confidence, but her show is still a unique delight.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 30 Aug.
