Cultural Zeitgeist

Comedy at the Cutty Sark, a double bill of Edinburgh Previews (sort of).

First things first the MC was terrible, just not funny.

Now to the acts, first up was Jessica Fostekew, I had never heard of her before but she was very good.

Next was Sara Pascoe (who isn’t going ot Edinburgh this year). A couple of things one of which is not relevant and one which is. She was much smaller and altogether more “delicate” than she appears on TV. Secondly she is much more offbeat and odd than she is on TV, this is a good thing. She reminded me at times of Bridget Christie (this is also a good thing). She was very good. The restrictions of TV don’t do her any favours.

I’d go and see either of them again.
