Sara Pascoe: The Musical!
Sara Pascoe: The Musical! is the story of a woman who could actually tell a joke AND play guitar. If you're the kind of gentleman who doesn't believe such things exist, don't worry, you can go back to looking surly and say your girlfriend dragged you along.
It's not really a musical (hurrah!) – more an interweaving of tales interspersed with fragments of song that sometimes, but not always, go nowhere. The actual amazing tale of Sara's life from adolescence to the present day, it will make you laugh, maybe make you cry a teeny bit, and certainly convince you that you're not the worst person in the room.
Dissecting everything from boob jobs to school assemblies, Sara shares with us her considerable wisdom and explains how Haagen-Dazs missed a trick with their advertising. And why you shouldn't write down your fantasies about turning a gay man.
The roving roundabout way of her narrative is cut off short again and again with abrupt one-liners that never fail to trip you up, no matter how prepared you think you are for it. Her delivery is almost impeccable, and her deft anecdotal style belies the considerable craftsmanship in her storytelling.
Sharp, unpredictable, and often brutally funny, this is a show not to be missed.
