I have seen Sarah Jones’ unique performances of ventriloquism before, so I was excited to hear about her solo show entitled “Creepy Dummy”. The show certainly lives up to its name, with Sarah introducing us to various “guests / friends” over the course of the evening. Each guest brought a different dimension and style of humour to the show, much to the delight of the audience. Some scenes had me on the verge of crying with laughter!
Whilst portions of the show teeter towards various shades of “creepy”, Sarah’s friendly smile and warm personality always manage to keep the audience (and show) on track and she keeps the laughs rolling! Regular checks are made for audience welfare, and to ensure the right levels of “creepy” were being maintained. I’m pleased to report that on the evening I attended all audience members were having a great time. This show has too many highlights to mention here, however special mentions go to the guest appearances from Sarah’s relatives and a certain friend of hers (you’ll know who I mean if you see the show!).
VERDICT: Another delightful show from Sarah Jones, perfect for weirdos / strangelings and lovers of comedy that is offbeat (while still being upbeat!).
