Nick Helm’s Xmas F*ck Fest 5: Pleasance Theatre, Islington, London, 2019
In December 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 show told 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.
Pearman again appeared at the Christmas show in December 2019. This time she appeared engulfed in a giant case speaking through the zip. The routine also included a member of the audience have makeup applied very badly to his face from Pearman. One to watch, hysterically funny and brimming with ideas, the routine was ridiculous, inane yet rewarding, charming to behold and superbly funny.
