Rosie’s Pop Diary – Rosie Wilby Review


I'm  not sure that you would classify Rosie Wilby's Pop Diary as stand-up, but I'm also not sure that you'd want to. A nostalgic narrative which mixes storytelling, standup, diary entries, visuals and songs, she details her time chasing stardom in an indie pop band during the 90s. Brutally honest and self-depricating, you're not entirely sure if you would have been friends with Rosie in the 90s, though luckily the Rosie of 2011 is a warm and engaging stage presence.

A highly enjoyable show, Rosie kept her energy and performance high despite the intimate size of the audience. And she should be playing to a larger audience – so go see her in the last few days of the Fringe while you still can!

Show details: 6:20pm at Just the Tonic at the Tron – book tickets HERE.

Sara Barron: Enemies Closer

It’s perhaps bad form to start a review by commenting on what the comic is wearing but I reckon, in saying that I was slightly distracted for a minute by her incredible E.T. shirt, Sara Barron would think I am just being perceptive. (I need that shirt.)
