ED2012 Comedy Review: Dirty Thirties (Lady Melville And Rosie Rebel)
Quite why Rosie and Erin thought a show themed around the high esteem they hold each other in would qualify as entertainment is beyond me. Thankfully their initially much-emphasised bond didn’t extend into an hour’s worth of sycophantic love-in. Instead, we were treated to each dirty thirty-year-old doing short bursts of their acts in alternation. Erin (who is also Lady Melville, the how and why never being established) did some sadly uninspired stand-up. Rosie Rebel was slightly better, proving herself a natural clown in her twisted Lady Gaga-esque finale and definitely having enough comic timing to raise some laughs. But ultimately it wasn’t enough to distract from the pair’s material, which never veered far from tedious.
Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, 3-26 Aug, 6.00pm.
