Review – Spring Day’s ‘How to Take a Punch to the Face

 

Though I was a few minutes late, I entered a packed, and laughing house at the Three (currently 'Free') Sisters in Cowgate.

As an American in Japan, a lot of her material is made up of shrewd observations that come from such culture clashes, stories of her travels, and of course, the valuable lesson that every little girl should learn – how to take a punch to the face.

Though her material is strong, the most notable thing about Spring's show is her delivery and stage presence. Spring's delivery is warm and natural, most of her set conversational and free flowing – it felt as much like a mate telling you a story in the pub as a standup gig. Braving the pounding music from the pub downstairs (definitely identified 'Valerie' by the Zutons at one point) without a microphone, she still firmly kept the audience on side.
