This should be interesting. Rosie Holt is a actress and writer who’s best known as a satirist with a massive Twitter presence for her roles as a parody Johnson-worshipping MP (surely not modelled on Nadine Dorries?). This show includes a couple of versions of that characters, along with several other caricatures of burbling backbenchers, a woke-bashing TV host and a posh lefty whose social-justice standards are immeasurably higher than anyone else’s. It’s all crisply observed and delivered with impeccable timing, although Holt came to prominence as one of a clutch of good lockdown comics in short social media performances, this show proves she can make the transition to a bigger stage and a longer format.
Still, she works particularly well in smallish comedy venues; the QE2 venue is just about the right size and its plush stylings might suit her biting wit, but its usual Dubai audience might not be best fit for her brand of topical, political and UK-centric humour. That said, she is very sharp and well worth seeing … Recommended.
