If you are looking for a show that explores lyrics of Taylor Swift tracks and compares it to real life situations and is the reason a comedian started a list of people that have ‘done her wrong’ then this is the show for you. Right from the start comedian Hannah makes it very obvious that she is a huge Swifty fan and it inspired her to write this show in some ways, well the song Look What You Made Me Do actually did.
If you are looking for a show that is mean and spiteful about revenge, this is not the show for you. If you are looking for a show about someone who has reflected on people in their life who have created situations that make them think about what impact that has had on her them this is the show for you. In this narrative based stand up show, Hannah talks about various people that have made the list such as her golf tutor, ex boyfriends and Lucie with the ie that have all create negative situations for her in the past.
It is a fun, factual stand up show where misunderstandings have lead to some comical outcomes. It is intertwined with focus on some more serious subjects along the way such as the way that women are treated in differently to men in industries such as comedy and the business world and also about how there are some political social issues in comedy as a whole. There is a funny look at the world of being a vegan, golf, relationships and even Father Christmas makes an appearance.
If you are looking for a well rounded stand up show then this is a stand up you need to go and check out. It is shows like this that make the fringe enjoyable and if you life Taylor Swift, then it is a definite must! It will make you want to listen to the album Reputation all over again!
