Saw this show as a last minute decision. Didn't stop laughing! The performer really knows how to captivate their audience and is a great storyteller.

Had a brilliant time at this show and would defo recommend if you’re looking for something to keep you laughing the whole way through!

Went to see this today and and had such a laugh! Although it was a small audience, it made the show feel more personal and felt like a catch up with a good mate! I am a lover of dark humour and perfectly timed jokes and this had it! Had a brilliant time and I’d defo recommend!

Invited my partner on our anniversary and it was great! Think of Luana as the Mouth Of Truth and be prepared to hear some truths and laugh at all of them! I have never been asked so openly when was the last time I had sex, or if we cheated on each other (ps yes we did but we fixed it). Anyone in need of a sex talk at 2pm give it a try;)

Luana's show was one of the best I've seen at Fringe! She has a way of bringing humor to the darkest topics and will make you laugh despite discussing serious topics.

She's not afraid to share her thoughts and she manages to express what we're all thinking but are afraid of saying out loud.

Definitely worth going to her show with your boyfriend, husband, lover(s), friends or family!

I watched about 20 shows in my four days at Fringe and How to cheat on your husband was one of the three that I enjoyed the most!

Luana is your friend who always has a story to tell, except her stories are always funny. She did a particular set for the audience on the day that I saw her, mixing up her material. It worked!

Her humour resonates with me and it will resonate with you too: yes, you can laugh about communism and infidelity and bad sex and parents (oh, parents!) and ninjas and sleeping your way around the world. Her humour is messy and dark, because, well, life is messy and dark. Yes, it is her story that she tells, but it is very much your story too.

I smiled all through the show and laughed with my own husband and my friends (I thought appropriate to bring to the show not only my husband but also my best friends, whose wedding I celebrated ;)

I’d go again to her shows when she comes to my city!

I usually don’t write reviews, who the fuck is going to read them? But if you are on one of the fuckers that didn’t see the show yet and was thinking about going, this is for you!

Luana Matei's how to cheat on your husband show is not a tutorial of how to cheat, it's about understanding what cheating is and why people are doing it, even if they know that it’s one of the worst things.

A comedy show that is not for everyone, it does not make you forget about your issues and the outside world, it makes you face your issues, understand them and also laugh on the way.

A dark comedy show with powerful and real messages that leave you feel good at the end

Get ready for a fun & dark show full of honesty, questions that you never thought you might get asked (you don’t need to answer them, so much fun if you do), stories from her life around the world. Luana talks about Japan in such a way, it made me feel a bit homesick, but at home at the same time. A guy came with a notebook, I came with my husband, most people came alone, but she somehow managed to create a sweet nice evening kind of ambiance at 2pm. Great show to start our stay in Edinburgh, definitely recommend it.

Felt bad for the performer as only 7 in the audience today. Some very dark humour perpetuated with some solid jokes but not sure it quite hit the mark. It was enjoyable enough and the “first hand “ account was a nice touch but expected more. Be warned if you’re sensitive or easily offended about the use of the “c” word and sex chat this is not for you

Massively enjoyed this show today. A deliciously dark commentary on relationships, fidelity, sex, and the crushing weight of societal expectations, with plenty of irreverent humour that made us cry with laughter. Unlike many so called "dark" comedians, Luana retains a genuine and sensitive edge to her humour that makes her likeable and fun to watch. I would massively recommend that show to anyone; whether single, married, or cheating on their husband!
