ED2012 Comedy Review: Kemsley and Callaghan – Keeping Their Cool (Harriet Kemsley and Sarah Callaghan)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Replete with awkward humour and superb comedic timing, this duo will keep you laughing and begging for more in one of the best free comedy shows I’ve seen at the Fringe. Kemsley and Callaghan touch upon the more important things in their twenty-odd years of experience, such as how Disneyland turned Kemsley into an atheist, and how to approach an ogre-like woman who’s slept with your boyfriend. Kemsley embodied a hilarious combination of bashful and weird, which juxtaposed perfectly with Callaghan’s in-your-face attitude, creating a phenomenally diverse show. Callaghan should slow down her delivery and try not to refer to her notes as often, but that comes with practice. All-in-all a fantastic show not to be missed.

Laughing Horse @ The Newsroom Basement, 3-26 Aug, 8.15pm.
