ED2012 Comedy Review: Helen Keen – Robot Woman Of Tomorrow (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2012

‘The Robot Woman Of Tomorrow’ is perfect for the audience of today. As geek chic rises to new heights, Helen Keen reminds us of its roots and speculates as to its destination in this highly intelligent, accessible stand-up. From sex robots to the failings of a flannel as a method of everyday cleansing, this weird and wonderful show has something for everyone, nerds and the hitherto unconverted. Keen’s frank yet sweet delivery charms the crowd, and some non-intimidating audience participation is mixed with some very original and entertaining visuals (best not to ruin the surprise on that one) to stunning effect. I can’t confidently predict hover-cars or empathic androids, but I can predict Helen Keen’s success.

Pleasance Courtyard, 1-26 Aug, 3.30pm.
