ED2012 Comedy Review: Lucy Cox – Attractive Audience Required (Lucy Cox / Laughing Horse Free Festival)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Honest, bubbly and exceedingly entertaining. Lucy Cox shares the story of her life as a single woman living with her parents in London: her dating disasters; the inherent threat of taking public transport; online dating and her love of winky faces and ridiculous milk toppers. Cox uses musical comedy throughout her performance, which is catchy, personal and very funny, plus her bright and bubbly attitude contrasts perfectly with her dark comedy and stories of everyday experiences everyone can kind of relate to. While there is nothing exceptionally different or unique to this show and it under runs a bit, it is structured with staple recipe for comedy that Cox pulls off extremely well. A strong, well assembled show which flows perfectly.
