Now I have of heard of Rosie Wilby the comedian for a few years now and each year I had seen her enjoyed her style more. But what I didn’t know that back in the 90’s, when she must have been at least 12, Rosie was a recording artiste and wrote a column in the magazine of the time ‘Makin’ Music’
So in what was a bit of a nostalgia trip for her and her audience Ms Wilby, with the aid of slides, filofax and assorted props, told us all of the stuff going on in the music world and her own life at that time.
As always she is funny, gently funny, not in your face style for her. Oh no anything but, yet in spite of the appalling technical issues she was experiencing on the night soldiered through, the true the show must go on philosophy.
But an integral part of show I hadn’t mentioned so far was that Rosie and guitar treated us all to a selection of her songs from way back then, and I must say what a wonderful singing voice she has and her music was very much to my taste too.
This show was in preview so I expect that the techy issues have been sorted now so give it a go, check out a teatime show with a difference.
