Izzy Mant: Polite Club (Get Comedy Ltd)

By | Published on Tuesday 13 August 2019

They say it’s always the quiet ones, and that would certainly be true for Izzy Mant. Her show tackles her very British ‘politeness’, and she has the audience in the palm of her hands throughout – with a teapot and cup, Mant has even dressed the stage fittingly to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Each section of the show is cleverly broken up by short videos of other people sharing times that being polite has either got them in trouble or ended up in hilarity somehow. Mant conquers her politeness addiction in this enjoyable combination of comedy and storytelling, with a surprise ending I certainly didn’t see coming.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug.
