Sara Pascoe vs History**** (Soho Theatre)

Posted: November 29, 2014 in Theatre


Having avoided stand-up comedy at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, it seemed like a good idea to get a taste of what I’d missed. And a good idea it proved to be. There is nothing fancy about this 1-hour routine – Sara (without the “h”) Pascoe just stands centre stage and chats. This is not the caustic in-your-face female comedy associated with the late Joan Rivers nor does it have the political agenda of the strident feminists. Pascoe does little more than make wry observations about the absurdities of modern life, but her presentation is relaxed and seamless. Most importantly, she is very funny., making this an hour well spent.

Performance date: 26 November 20
