ED2012 Comedy Review: Ladies Live Longer – Ladylike (Ladies Live Longer)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Seeming to embrace the fact that ladylike tendencies are in fact not always desirable, Louise Fitzgerald and Victoria Temple-Morris are the kind of women who are simply inherently funny. With sharp delivery, hilarious writing, masses of wit and first-rate acting ability, there was little this pair did which did not have the audience in stitches. Satirising every kind of woman from stalker to harassed mother to Essex housewife, and adding in the odd comical song, rap or mime, they constantly surprised us with their infectious energy, originality and animation, perfectly balancing that with audience involvement. An hour in the company of Ladies Live Longer will go quicker than many others at this year’s Fringe.

C nova, 2-27 Aug, 3.30pm.
