Wendy Wason – Tiny Me 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 17, Aug 2016
Wendy Wason is an endangered species. She is an Edinburgh native actually on stage during the world’s largest arts festival, and once again she entertains her audience with her take on things.
Ms Wason has a variety of roles, daughter, friend, mother, wife, ex-wife not to mention funny comedian. She rattles through a whole series of anecdotes to illustrate how today modern woman has to multi-task to cope with all these roles and still hopefully have time for little me, Wendy time.
She has a show with plenty of content. She occasionally starts a story but gets side-tracked but usually gets back to the story to deliver the message and punchline.
The show has the feel of being a wee chat, not the polished to an inch of its life production that is both refreshing and yet endearing, but there is light and shade throughout especially when it comes to material relating to her kids. As a mother of three there is plenty of scope and she makes the most of it.
Wendy is always a pleasure to watch, and I’m sure the audience could have listened to way more of her fund of tales than they enjoyed on the night.
