Character Talks Pernilla Holland 3*** - One4Review
one4review | On 22, Aug 2016
One woman female character dynamo Pernilla Holland puts loads of energy and work into her hour, introducing and often revisiting some of her characters occasionally to excess.
From a failed Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest wanna be, to a recruitment consultant, a motivational speaker and Jpeg Meg the blogger Ms Holland gives reign to her abilities and eccentric writing to fulfil her hour to the brim.
The most successful one for me was however the afterschool group leader talking and intermingling with the audience forcibly handing out biscuits has the most mileage, but even this was a little overused. There is only so many times you can laugh at essentially the same gags.
Pernilla certainly includes her audience, be it feeding the entire crowd biscuits, getting them into the Eurovision star backing band or as subjects along the way, but it is gentle and non-threatening.
She has loads of ability, and a pleasing demeanour but in my opinion the material needed to be a little stronger at times.
It was a pleasant way to spend an early afternoon hour and it will be interesting to see how she develops
