Andrea Hubert at the 2010 Laughing Horse new act final

Note: This review is from 2010

Review by Steve Bennett

As a tall girl with a very distinctive look, Andrea Hubert immediately stands out. She’s a thoroughly engaging presence, too, with a quirkily descriptive approach to her observations. In truth, she is probably better than her material, which can be slow to build – but she can get laughs from comments that aren’t all that funny, which is definitely a gift.

Key to it all is the tableau she so convincingly paints of her life as 30-year-old, single, often-unemployed cat-loving Jewish girl. She establishes this persona quickly, and all material hangs off it so naturally that you are drawn instinctively into her world.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
