Angry Young Women in Low Rise Jeans with High Class Issues 3*** - One4Review
one4review | On 08, Aug 2014
This cult sketch show makes its Edinburgh debut having been a huge hit in the US and Australia. Each sketch takes a satirical look at many issues affecting the modern women,men, sexuality and relationships.
Some sketches were excellent, particularly the guys watching a football game trying to appease one of their very hormonal girlfriends who was extremely sensitive to every comment they made. There were discussions about one night stands, womens underwear with mother daughter bonding sessions whilst having most of their body hair waxed. One scene on the set of a film where the lead character needed encouragement to remove her clothes started well but seemed to drag on longer than was necessary.
Although I would have preferred shorter sketches with more substance, there were a number of laughs and overall this was an enjoyable show with all performers showing their experience and versatility.
