Miss Glory Pearl - The Naked Stand-Up 3*** - One4Review
one4review | On 09, Aug 2014
Miss Glory Pearl is a former stripper, a burlesque dancer and a onetime teacher so what is she doing trying stand-up? In her first Edinburgh show she presents her show totally naked and standing up so I guess the title is accurate.
The show is to challenge the negative body image everyone has of themselves and in that degree at least it succeeds, there are a number of gentle laughs peppering the performance, but I think the charm of the show I attended was that everybody there was involved and this personable performer was like a motivation councillor a fair amount of the time.
There was a question as to if it was legal to do the show, the research was done and explained, the Naked Rambler, Botox treatment and the ‘circle of shame’ / ring of confidence experiment with audience participation were stopping off points.
I have to say I enjoyed the performance, which is not necessarily for everyone. I am not sure that it is that is actually that funny, but is immensely enjoyable.
