Jo’s feisty style of comedy is under way at the Fringe and she’s taking no prisoners. In this slightly sinister but amusingly observational performance she’s fed up with couples who don’t shut up about who they met on holiday, men in their natural habitat, supermarket assistants, supermarket customers, an ignorant blind company and over-friendly passers by. The jokes are humorously insightful and her attitude loads up the laughs, but I felt just a couple of times that she was trying to be dark just for the sake of it. Nonetheless, she had most of the audience in stitches all the way through, and I would recommend this show to those of you who appreciate thoroughly cynical comedians.
