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.
