ED2012 Comedy Review: Fran Moulds – Significant Human Error (Avalon Promotions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Fran Moulds could not have a more appropriate name, because it’s her versatility as a performer that renders her debut Fringe show a veritable success. Performing six comic monologues – from a politically resentful guide of a Welsh mining museum, to a narcissistic, self-loathing celebrity columnist – Moulds certainly displays her undeniable talents as an accomplished character actress and storyteller. Not only does she perform each piece to great comedic effect, but Moulds also manages to produce a darker, more sinister edge which adds a sense of unnerving realism to each sketch, elevating them from simple, one-dimensional comedy characters. A master class in performance, I can’t wait to see what else this gifted actress will produce.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-26 Aug, 2.50pm.
