Juliet Meyers – Through The Pigeonhole (Juliet Meyers)

By | Published on Saturday 22 August 2015

Juliet Meyers

Juliet Meyers takes a comedic look at the metaphorical boxes we like to put ourselves in, as well as the boxes we’re put in by others. What labels do you give yourself? There is a shambolic quality to Meyers comedy that instantly endears her to the audience. Jumping from one anecdotal punchline to another, the comedian is easily distracted, but this only leads to more laughs. She looks back at her family’s heritage, and how she fit in because of this, but the show also deals with bigger issues of forced identity in the United Kingdom today. She continues right up to the boxes she finds herself in today – with strangers at weddings judging her for not having children.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 30 Aug.
