La Petite Mort – The Orgasm

2 Stars


Isabel Hertaeg’s show didn’t really get off the ground. It could be described as a biology lesson with songs. There are plenty of facts delivered in a detailed and restrained way. For example, information about the sex habits of seagulls and voles doesn’t provide many laughs, however true.

On the other hand, the songs she has penned are more edgy and humorous. She has a strong voice and a good vocal range. However, what is missing from her performance is a feeling of sensuality and a real connection with the audience. She didn’t take risks and, as a comedy show, this was disappointing.
