Nick Helm’s Xmas F*ck Fest 4: Pleasance Theatre, Islington, London, 2018
Lucy Pearman performed on stage at Nick Helm’s Christmas show dressed as a bunch of grapes which is part of her 2018 Fringe show Fruit Loop. The how tells the absurd story of a worm who wants to learn to fly and Pearman is so endearing with an audience that they cannot help but smile. The audience participation is inspired – during the sketch she kept looking at me saying and holding up a sign ‘Please stop looking at me!’ which of course I couldn’t do. Brimming with ideas, the routine was ridiculous, inane yet rewarding, charming to behold and superbly funny.
