Sara Pascoe vs The Apocalypse

3 Stars ***

Last years show called was almost uniformly rated as 2 ** Ms Pascoe tells us in the over self deprecating start to proceedings and she was dubbed arrogant.

So for this year she has set about the challenge how she was the only person to survive the Apocalypse, well she claims to be half cockroach,  and how she would change things when she ruled the world. Not arrogant at all this year then!!

Now Sara has a fair amount of good material through her set, but some strangely weird stuff too. The huge screen that dominated her stage to illustrate her points and rules did somewhat restricted her movements and the resolution was not the best from my position.

The show did slightly feel ‘preachy’ at times, genuinely funny at others and absolutely disturbing on occasions, but I felt there was probably far more in her locker than she brought to the show.
