Timandra Harkness – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2000

Review by Steve Bennett

Politely ignored by much of the audience at the gig Chortle saw, Harkness didn't have enough stage manner to carry off the unexceptional material she's working with. She even told someone who wasn't causing a particular nuisance to "sit down and shut up", which is hardly a way to endear yourself. A couple of nice comic ideas are touched upon, but there's really nothing in this lacklustre set worth going out of you way to see.
