Rachel Parris: Keynote (Live Nation in association with Troika)

By | Published on Wednesday 23 August 2017

Having been invited to go back to her school as a guest speaker, Rachel Parris is trying to figure out what advice she can give to the next generation. The trouble is, she’s not really sure if she’s got life quite figured out herself yet! She takes us through the ideas she has for key messages in this very amusing hour that, as a thirty-something, I found very easy to relate to. There’s also some character comedy that doesn’t quite draw the same laughs as her musical numbers, because really she’s at her best when she’s being herself. Despite what her mother’s told her, she’s naturally funny and I reckon she’s a pretty good role model too.

Pleasance Dome, until 28 Aug.
