Helen Lederer: Finger Food
One of the UK's most successful and instantly recognisable comic actresses Helen Lederer returns to the Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Festival, after an absence of eight years, with a brand new show, described as as "three women in search of a nervous breakdown meets Noises Off!"
The spoof cookery show with which Helen Lederer makes her
Lederer's unattractive and one-dimensional character is an
As she cooks, she witters meaninglessly about soft furnishings,
In a vain attempt to shore up the painfully weak premise,
It's typical of a script with no comedy compass, an untidy
Miranda Hart, who plays the beleaguered, hopeless floor manager,
It wasn't that bad at all. It had some very funny ideas which could have been better timed and presented. It needs re-wrting and is potentially very funny indeed.
This should come as no suprise. A talentless fuckwit who was lucky enough to cling onto the bandwagon of Eghties smug ex uni luvvies and has earned money of the back of it ever since. Hopefully she will now lose enough money to remove any delusions that she is funny or has anything to offer.
