It Woulda Been Nice
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2001
You are invited to a dinner party hosted by Sugar, Tina and Jen, three crazy ladies for the price of one.
This manic, neurotic and unfunny playlet is performed by American Steven Froelich, with his head poking through a black box to simulate an aeroplane.
It charts the story of three women who may or may not be related - it was difficult to tell because the characters were so poorly drawn. The only difference between these bitchy men-haters was Froelich's varing hairstyle.
At just 35 minutes - though its brevity was perhaps its only saving grace - this self-indulgent and unfunny show failed to generate any audience rapport and felt pretty flat from the outset.
Laugh? It woulda been nice.
