LOLLY ADEFOPE

Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2018
Films To Be Buried With Live with Brett Goldstein: National Film Theatre, Southbank, London, 2019

Character comedian Lolly Adefope returned to Always Be Comedy for an Edinburgh preview show in May 2018.  As I watched, she was massively entertaining delivering work-in-progress showcase for her gift of razor-sharp characterisation.  Although there is bleakness, her characters are very humorous and are insanely overblown, while blandly familiar.  As a preview of her new Edinburgh show, Adefope is immensely impressive to watch.

I was very glad to see Adefope as a guest with Brett Goldstein for his Films To Be Buried With podcast live at the National Film Theatre in February 2019.  The entertaining evening provided some inspiring film choices whilst Adefope looked back over her life and career.  She proved to be an excellent guest providing quick, witty and engaging answers.
