Julia Masli: CHOOSH! (Impatient Productions Ltd)

By | Published on Friday 19 August 2022

Julia Masli is a top clown and we shall see more of her. Building on firm tradition, she offers highly original and sometimes edgy material. This show also has an absurdist narrative: an innocent journeys from Eastern Europe to America for a hot dog, where her experiences enable some gentle, sharp and hilarious social commentary. Chaplinesque as it might be, don’t get your ticket for a political critique. Sometimes it’s risqué, mostly it is just very funny. Her ask of the audience is occasionally ambitious, but she won some game contributions and as the show reached its climax we were all joining in. Julia sparingly adds her own quiet voice to proceedings and the whole show has great charm.

Assembly Roxy, until 28 Aug.
