Sikisa: Life Of The Party (Berk’s Nest In Association With Blue Book Artist Management)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

Sikisa invites her audience quite literally into this Fringe debut, as she hosts a house party complete with banging tunes, a dance tutorial and a deliciously mean party game. All this provides the perfect setting for Sikisa to show off her warmth as a performer. Her openness means that Sikisa’s anecdotes about being an immigration lawyer and growing up in South London feel instantly relatable to a broader crowd, which is a key strength. You’ll notice hallmarks of first hour nerves underneath the bravado, which derail the flow of a few jokes. However, the dance breaks which staple her setpieces together provide an interactivity that proves Sikisa doesn’t need to be polished. What’s a party without getting a bit messy?

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
