Aisling Bea: Plan Bea 4*** - One4Review
one4review | On 23, Aug 2015
In 2013 Aisling Bea was nominated as Best Newcomer for her debut Edinburgh hour and although was missing last year, other stuff got in the way, the lady herself is back with a show packed with laughs and entertainment.
Her high energy opening is probably ill advised given the temperature in the room but once this is over she is straight into an hour of material all delivered at breakneck speed.
There is a return of her growing up in the Irish countryside with her sister her mother and TV with only two channels gave Ms Bea the taste of America through the likes of Baywatch. She and her sister expected to be discovered by a producer driving by.
Other stories about going to drama school, shooting a pirate-rock video, gigging in Hollywood and the breakup with her man with the wandering mickey are aired by Aisling with charm and sarcastic asides adding to her appeal.
As well as a hot room her show has become a hot ticket too with virtually every night the sold –out sign is up, but fear not extra shows have been added so you still may have a chance.
