ED2012 Comedy Review: Catriona Knox – Hellcat (Mick Perrin For Just For Laughs Live)

By | Published on Tuesday 7 August 2012

A controversial beginning sets up an intriguing performance as Catriona Knox informs the audience that it’s Judgement Day. Before we discover our fate, we are led through our final hour, which features novelty characters bursting with eccentricity. Catriona immerses herself in an assortment of characters varying from Andy Murray’s mother to a blunt make-up artist lacking enthusiasm. This is an intimate performance that succeeds in creating a naturally uncomfortable atmosphere as the strikingly realistic characters look you straight in the eye and tell you their tale. The laughter wasn’t consistent throughout, but at her best, Catriona is hilarious. If you can hack the awkward tension, ‘Hellcat’ is well worth your time.

Underbelly, Bristo Square, 1-27 Aug (not 13), 5.40pm.
