Zoe Lyons hits the stage running with an immediate gag about the messed up ticketing system at this year's Fringe and from there it's straight into her set about how she focuses on certain things to enable her to keep on going in today's world. Her main mantra is more, more, more, and she gives us a lot of laughs as she tells us how she's tried to sell her Brighton flat during the current credit crunch. Then it's onto why we all want to pay less, less, less, buying cheap crap that's made in third-world countries for tuppence, and the effect of sweatshop labour on the price of that nice new pair of Nikes.
On to the middle-class worry about her carbon footprint, and her consequent attempts to atone by taking the hell-on-earth that is the London to Glasgow Megabus, and she manages to bond nicely with the audience. Worrying about how her worrying might itself be shaping events around her gives us a nice skit on strange but funny neuroses, and then there's some very good material on middle-class binge drinking (more claret, anyone?).
Clearly a well-thought out show, but with just enough room left in it to enjoy a bit of banter with her audience, this is a fine comedy performance go see.
