User reviews

Lisa Skye's show this year is a storytelling piece. She recounts Bunny and Mad Dog's hedonistic life in the 70s and ultimately relates it to herself with a well crafted twist.

The delivery is polished and there are some interesting devices to help things along. Lisa is most in her element when interacting with the audience, but it is done in a truly consensual way. Nobody is going to have an uncomfortable time and its hard to imagine anybody going away without loving the show.

Fans of Lisa Skye's 2013 "Ladyboner" show will be glad to see the trademark glitter stayed in. Unfortunately there were no spoken word metronome bits, and not too much audience interaction, but of course this year's show was about Bunny and Mad Dog. Well, its a bit about Lisa too...

This is the fringe at its best. An intimate venue with a skillful comedian giving us something slightly different, connecting with her audience, and making sure everybody has a good time. I'm already itching to see what she is bringing us next year!
