Holy shit! What a review from The Observer today! Woohoo!
“New York comic Katie Goodman (Gilded Balloon) has been described as a female Tim Minchin. I was extremely sceptical, but it turns out the praise could not be more apt. Goodman is a multi-talented singer and musician with a sharp line in political satire and a voice than can send goosebumps up your spine or make the light fittings rattle. Ripping through songs in a variety of styles, from rap through country to Italian opera, she skewers religion, homophobia, Milfs, the Tea Party and her own midlife crisis with a merciless eye and a filthy mouth. There are plenty of musical comics out there, but few who base lyrics on a study of repressed homosexuality in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology or do a dance incorporating Kegel exercises. Goodman has a cult following in the US and on YouTube, and this, her first solo show, is sure to win her a fanbase here.”
Well we’re off and running and having a great time. To let people know about the show, go here:
