Izzy Mant: Polite Club

How do you combine your polite side with your honest side? Is there such a thing as being too polite? Would you put yourself through a situation just in order to be polite? Izzy Mant poses these questions in her show Polite Club.

We’ve all heard about resting bitch face, Izzy has resting polite face and that brings her some problems. It’s a combination of her genes and upbringing, and it is a good jumping out point for a show filled with amusing anecdotes of work misunderstandings and unsuccessful past relationships.

Taking a page from her day job, Mant is a good producer, and supported her show with some multimedia documentation of other people’s stories of politeness. The combination of these two threads make for an entertaining show, that kept the orderly audience engaged, even when wet to the bones, on a very rainy Edinburgh Fringe day.
