Not to make knickers the theme here, but anyone who takes her final bow with three pairs around her ankles deserves a mention. This New Yorker – seen last year in La Clique – is back with her own show in the welcome new Bosco theatre (no relation to the ginger lad we all grew up with), bringing a spectacular voice, a theatrical face, a bass player and a pair of rollerskates.
Her act Round She Goes may be a little raggy in places, but Amy G is an out and out star, and in total command of an audience mesmerised by her rollerjinks. Ok, she may not change your life but she will make you laugh and provide you with an hour-odd’s entertainment for the very reasonable price of 15 quid. She’s also, frankly, drop dead gorgeous which in no way takes away from her talent but is worth a mention if only to bring more punters in to witness her deserving performance.
Anyone see her? If not, stop reading because the following may contain spoilers: any comments on her kazoo in the wazoo routine? Was it a tad Carry On Kazooing, or am I just not sufficiently Fringe? Are y’all ready for this jelly?
