Funny Women review Lucy Pearman 2016
ďIs this the egg one?Ē People are asking around me before they walk in, and some others nod. Word has got around about Lucy Pearman: Crack in Progress.

The lights turn off and the music goes up in what might be the smallest room at the Fringe. Four rows of people are crammed on the floor, on the edges of chairs and in each otherís laps.

The show is described as ďrelaxing nonsenseĒ and I canít think of a better way to sum it up myself. Itís a half an hour of stand up about an ambitious egg. Itís like watching a live Pixar movie.

Itís mad. Itís brilliant. Itís brave and I canít think of anyone on the fringe doing anything like it. Lucy Pearman is doing something new with the form that pays off in a big way. She engages with her audience and thereís nobody in the crowds that feels unsatisfied by the performance. Pearmanís spent a lot of time thinking about that egg, and you can tell.
Crack In Progress follows the massive success of LetLuce, Lucy Pearman and Letty Butlerís double act that took the Fringe by storm last year. Somehow Lucy manages to carry the joy and colour and beauty of spectacular immersive comedy into her one woman show in a big way. Youíre enraptured by her (well thought out and completely logical) nonsense. Itís fantastic.
Lucy Pearman is so very endearing to watch and an integral feature of pioneering new comedy in a big way. I thoroughly enjoyed every second, and I am excited to see what Lucy and the rest of the Weirdos collective produce next. Click Here

The Good review, Lucy Pearman: Crack in Progress
There are some performers that, no matter their onstage choices, are magnetic. The like-ability is such that regardless of the showís subject matter, of how far you have to suspend your disbelief, you leave with a huge smile on your face bouncing down the road like Maria Von Trapp on a space hopper.
Lucy Pearman is one such performer. And in her show ĎCrack in Progressí she plays an egg.
Oh, this isnít metaphorical. Itís not symbolic, nor does it allude to anything deeper. She literally plays an egg. And not just any egg. An egg with echoes of Dolly Parton and kisses for all. And itís just marvellous.
Anyone familiar with smash hit comedy duo LetLuce (described as the Mighty Boosh meets French and Saunders) will already be familiar with the madcap world Lucy deals in. This year sheís gone it alone, and pulls it off with aplomb; she sings, interacts with the audience (in her teeny tiny room) and clowns around for 30 mins and the result is total old school fun.
If you think it sounds mad-youíre right. If you think itís not for you-youíre wrong. Itís sweet and charming and uplifting, and frankly youíll be hard pressed to find better company than all round good egg Pearman.
ĎCrack in Progressí runs until August 28th at Free Sisters Cowgate. Tickets are free (no show 15th & 16th) Click Here
