Becky Lucas is blunt and this is not for everyone but it is not to the point where you cannot enjoy her observations and stories. I would like to think that most audiences should be able to enjoy good comedy despite occasional frankness.
I left Becky’s gig wanting more. Her set was quality and concise but left me feeling unfulfilled. Becky’s reaction at the end of the gig contributed to this, she made the audience (or at least me) feel she was not happy with how the gig had gone. There were a couple of moments when solid material did not get the laughs that they deserved but there were also moments when significant laughter did not appear to register.
After seeing the show, I got online, found her social media, watched more of her sets on YouTube and even subscribed to her newsletter. Becky is a better comedian than she was received on that Tight Arse Tuesday (yay cheap tickets).
Becky is a prolific Twitter user, her account is full of witty banter and the like (so much so I was a little wary of discussing her show) but I think it’s worth acknowledging that she was funnier that night than perhaps she thought she was and the comedy suffered because of it.
