ED2012 Comedy Review: Vikki Stone – Hot Mess (Corrie McGuire For Objective Talent)

By | Published on Saturday 18 August 2012

This woman is wonderful: from the very first minute her bubbly character shines and she immediately makes herself endearing. The time seems to fly by – in fact, you may feel a bit cheated that the hour seems to be over so quickly – with anecdotes, a piano, songs, Deal Or No Deal, and shoulder pads featuring heavily. A vague knowledge of TV helps but is not entirely necessary, as she takes us on a tour round her favourite celebrities, dwelling on Phillip Schofield in all his silver-haired glory. The only negative was her choice of audience helper, who didn’t seem too happy being drafted on-stage. If you’re one of these people who are under the illusion that women aren’t funny, go see Vikki Stone and you’ll change your mind: she’s funny, fabulous and female.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-26 Aug (not 14), 8.10pm.
