I LOOOOVE Comedy.  Love.  Aly Wong to Jenny Slate to Bridget to Wanda to Amy to Lily.

Saw this and totally did not get the buzz at all.  It was fun for sure - and sometimes fun is just fine - but from the raves out of the UK was expecting more

@vernongersch - I’m with you on this. Liked it. Was glad I saw it. But my expectations were probably unrealistic after all of the incredible UK reviews.

anyone else seeing this before is closes?  I hope it's way better than Alex Edelman's.

I saw it and liked it, she's an excellent performer but I enjoyed Alex Edelman a lot more- her humor is VERY British so not all the jokes/references landed when I went. There were lines which I'm sure killed back across the pond but not really here.. she also speaks softly and the sound design isn't great.

 

Alex Edelman is a little more accessible since he's a NYer playing for a NY crowd. I still reccomend her show though and it felt good supporting a female comedian.

I'd agree that Alex Edelman's current show is stronger. Interestingly, there was another British performer who did a one-person show earlier in that same theater: Leo Reich: Literally Who Cares?!, which I enjoyed more than Kingsman's show and was thematically similar.

Saw this weeks ago and while it had some brilliant moments (the water bottle gag) it really dragged for a 75 minute show, if you aren't familar with the stage version of FLEABAG I feel like alot of it gets lost.
