Brodi Snook: Handful, Gilded Balloon Teviot, Edinburgh * * *
Hence why the smug, hippy date who called her a “handful” gets his pseudy boorishness witheringly mocked. Hence too how her ex-boyfriend argued himself into the show.
Dryly caustic, London-based Australian Snook appears confident.
Though she’s invariably on the front foot, she’s nevertheless open about her self-esteem issues. And she drops a disclosure of toxic masculinity that casts her previous routines in sharper, more disturbing relief. Destabilised for almost a year, this acerbically funny performer is now getting back to bad habits.
Until 26 August
