Felicity Ward: 50% More Likely To Die (Brett Vincent for Get Comedy in association with Phil McIntyre)
By Gemma Scott | Published on Wednesday 24 August 2016
We’re about half way through the festival now, but Felicity Ward shows no sign of slowing down. She practically fizzes with energy during this show- she bounds around the stage, laughs at her own (chicken-based) musical interludes and talks like she could keep going for hours. She essentially tells one story, about a time when she left her bag on the bus, but the hour is filled with amusing anecdotes about life as an anxious Aussie living in London. It’s loud, it’s brash, and Ward is certainly not afraid of making herself look ridiculous. The title is a reference to her mental health issues, something she talks about openly and regularly during her set. Anxiety has never been this funny.
Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
