Review: Sketch Up! not at the Leicester Comedy Festival

Instead of old man yells at cloud, this review starts with young-ish man shakes fist at Covid. These sketches, the work of Sheffield based Rachel E. Thorn and produced by Melanie Crawley and Gerard Fletcher were to be performed this month at the Leicester Comedy Festival, and it sure would have been fun to go see them in action.

Review: Lovefool

This one-woman show is an insightful piece of writing with some very clever comedy. Rachel E Thorn effortlessly brings her world of characters to life as she puzzles out where her future lies.

Sex, Lies & Improvisation review

Sex, Lies & Improvisation is a fine example of the craft of improvisation and the development of a gripping story. The play makes a smooth transition from live to online format and is well worth catching.

I applaud any artist on a stage than speaks to the audience like friends and not just numbers in seats, welcoming us warmly to watch them, making us feel comfortable, and laugh instantly.
