ED2012 Comedy Review: Cariad Lloyd – The Freewheelin’ Cariad Lloyd (Mick Perrin For Just For Laughs Live)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Cariad Lloyd has an incredible ability to keep an audience in fits of laughter, even when they don’t get the reference. From her well delivered range of diverse and absurd characters, murder mystery detective Mama Moomin and the disturbing child-woman Jooey Bechamel are real favourites. A nice touch was the arrival of the Fringe Administrators, bursting in to demand that because the show is listed under comedy, her characters had to stop tugging at heartstrings. But, as Lloyd fiercely stated when breaking the fourth wall, she’s determined to show off her acting skills. Lots of fun, if sometimes hard to keep up with.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-27 Aug (not 14), 4.45pm.
