Comedy review: Caroline Mabey: Quetzals

Have your say

Edinburgh Festival Fringe: This is a mess, sadly. I strike that note of regret as Mabey is a likeable performer. She’s physical, expressive and has a good off-the-cuff rapport with her audience. But her gags are weak and unfocused.

Just the Tonic at The Caves (Venue 88)


This rambling hour of eager-to-please kookiness feels like an unfinished early draft and ends with an interminable, garbled routine in which she memorises every two-letter word in the Scrabble dictionary.

Until 27 August. Today 7:40pm.
