Gráinne Maguire - Great People Making Great Choices 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 25, Aug 2016
Gráinne Maguire is a comedian who always seems to be slightly under the radar to a lot of people but can certainly hold her own with the best, especially when it involves her talking about politics in my opinion.
However this show starts off with more of an insight into her, growing up with a Jekyll & Hyde father, her fantasies of being in a ‘romantic’ civil war, the way Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Beauty and The Beast and Wizard of Oz maybe influence a young girls thinking on gender roles before melding into how people and nations view themselves.
She has anecdotes about museums especially one in Germany, relationships a visit to The Planetarium but the strongest material is when she gets into politics, something that majors on the controversial 8th amendment in her native Ireland which is all about abortion laws.
Ms McGuire is a performer to be listened to as she talks a lot of sense. She does so with a set that is well constructed and filled with funny moments.
