Review: Sara Pascoe gave an ‘inventive and enjoyable’ set at Norwich Playhouse

Even allowing for irony, Ladsladslads is perhaps the most unrepresentative name Sara Pascoe could have come up with for her tour.
Launching the two-month circuit in Norwich, Pascoe instead admits how she was once described as 'too tampon-y'; in fact her comedy mostly deals with universal conundrums rather than any gender-specific agenda.
We hear about her trials with her family, her history of overlapping relationships, and her distrust of conjoined twins. Her delivery is relaxed, honest, and engaging with a breezy style that I suspect masks a much sharper intellect than she is willing to let on.
Fans will have recognised a few routines from TV outings, but that doesn't make the jokes any less funny and there were several big laughs during the night. It was a funny, inventive, enjoyable set. It just needs a better name.
Sara Pascoe will also perform at King's Lynn Corn Exchange on November 10 and Cambridge Corn Exchange on November 25.
