ED2012 Comedy Review: Susan Calman – This Lady’s Not for Turning Either (Underbelly Productions)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

For a small amount of time I feared for Susan Calman’s wife. But while Susan spends most of the hour trying to convince us of the reasons why nobody should marry her, you can see why somebody would (lucky wife). She comes to the stage with orchestrated pizzazz, receiving the stadium welcome she truly deserves, and carries it through the entire performance with her chatty, I-am-your-best-friend style. If nothing were wrong in this world, her show would have an ending, but she leaves it up to us to support her in her quest (I hope this gets a theme tune too) to marry her one true love. All I can say is Calman for President!

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-27Aug (not 13), 6.00pm
