Come witness the place where laughter comes to die. As Dick launched her “comedy” into the oppressive silence, the box of wine on the side table never looked more appealing. Whether Dick intended her show as ironic (it wasn’t) was anyone’s guess. Whichever way you spin it – ironic, failed ironic, downright masochistic – it was an awkward, uncomfortable performance. Faced with leaden jokes and a baffling headset, I sat fervently counting the minutes until my release. If you enjoy burning money or experiencing the slow decay of time, then by all means buy a ticket. But with the economy as it is, you’d be safer playing the stock market for all the return you’ll get.
Just The Tonic at The Store, 4 – 28 Aug (not 16), 1.40pm (2.40pm), £3.50 – £7.00, fpp66.
