Sarah Bennetto Is Lucky
Sarah lives in London now. But she's come home to tell you this story. You see, Sarah's the luckiest person you've ever met.
She's won everything: concert tickets, holidays, shopping sprees, the lottery, a car, 27 bottles of hairspray. And she accidentally dined with Prince Charles at the palace.
So, what is luck? The truth is, there's a point at which most people eschew the pursuit of luck in the name of a nice, normal life.
Sarah is not one of those people. Her house is full of soup tins with no labels, she has every radio station on speed-dial (but not her mum) and she's one of Ďthose people' who camp overnight for concert tickets.
Lucky is the story of wildly seeking your fortune...and the fellow freaks you encounter along the way.
Original Review:This canít be right. Comedians are supposed to be losers; thatís why theyíre funny. But lucky Sarah Bennetto is a big-time winner, having scooped a car, thousands of dollars and countless concert tickets, T-shirts and miscellaneous goodies in competitions over the years.
Her first solo show charts this success story, which has been driven as much by chance as by guile and determination. Itís a straightforward, but engaging, telling with no aspiration to attempt anything more ambitious.
Grand ideas are flirted with rather than explored. The concept that you make your own luck, for example, is mentioned only in passing, while the introduction of a statistician suggests the show could spin off into a big pseudo-scientific experiment to test her good fortune against the mathematical odds. But it doesnít.
What Lucky does achieve, however, is a warmly enjoyable 45 minutes of engaging storytelling, which is exactly what Bennetto set out to do. Indeed, she runs a regular storytelling club, which has helped convert her lashings of girl-next-door charm into relaxed stage presence.
She also employs a few tricks of the anecdote trade, such as manipulating the audience reaction to some old clips of her younger self winning a car on the TV magazine show In Melbourne Tonight. It sets up a finale that isnít, perhaps, where the show would naturally lead Ė but does provide a feelgood conclusion. That, and the special, generous treat saved till the end, to ensure everyone leaves a winner.
And thatís what this is all about: feeling good. Thereís possibly not a single joke in the traditional sense of the word here, but there are buckets of natural good humour from an easily likeable host who has a nice way of spinning an uplifting yarn to best effect.
If youíre looking to pass some time with delightful stories from a likeable host, you could strike lucky with Bennetto.
