I saw Lucie’s show tonight and I simply loved it!
She is a brilliant performer and a great actress.
Her bubbly and vibrant personality mixed with her talent create the perfect hour of comedy everyone should enjoy.
Go and see her!!

Lucie’s show’s humour comes from a variety of sources: the stark juxtaposition of Gamers worshipping her online while in real life she trudges to the store to buy another box of cockroach poison, the jockeying for position between the has-beens and the wannabes at Comicon, and the boundaries of fantasy. Or lack thereof.

One assumes she expected to portray fictional characters when she became an actress, but what does that mean when her online audience lives far more in their fictional world than in the real one? She raises interesting questions and uses them as a springboard into fertile comedy grounds.

Lucie confesses at the start that she began writing late and that the show didn’t end up being what she envisioned, but being that honest with yourself and saying it out loud to others is actually the central theme of the show, so she could hardly be more on message than that. I think if she’d allowed more time in the writing, she could have pulled the disparate elements into a single cohesive hour with a visible through-line and tied it all up with a bow at the end. I’m surprised she hasn’t done this over the run (the pieces are all there), but maybe it would have broken the rhythm?

I think she is actually better than the material, which is fine because she will happily interact with the audience. Her winning, engaging personality is what you’re going for rather than her meticulous preparation, so if it feels a bit uneven, just go with it. In a show called Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Real, it doesn’t get much more real than pulling up a chair at the end and saying ‘well, this didn’t go as originally planned, but let’s talk…’ I will definitely see her again.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and find out what tentacle porn is.

Her comedic talent safely carried her through, meaning she was able to blag it, producing a show that, although disjointed, had the audience laughing hard.

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 169 days ago

Lucie Pohl is an extremely talented performer; this is a statement I cannot stress enough. It takes an impressive type of stand-up to beat a quiet audience and early Fringe jitters, all the while winning over a reviewer who doesn’t love all of your material. But Pohl has an element...
