This post is all about the amazing Harriet Kemsley – she is my only highlight of week 2, ha!
Harriet is thee Harriet from Harriet and Bobby Get Married (and Bobby’s wife who I seen last week). I slightly fangirled when I seen her at The Caves on Saturday.
This show started slightly different to all other ones I had been to so far. Harriet welcomed everyone into the room and chatted to them – very nice touch! The room was roasting hot but we had been prewarned so came armed with a refreshing vodka.
The show is called ‘Bad at Doing’ but as Harriet pointed out it read ‘Bad at Doing’ like the sound Big Ben makes… or no longer makes. Anyway she spoke about her struggles dealing with her newly diagnosed dyspraxia and how she is really bad at doing stuff – like coming up with a title for her show and printing out her diagnosis report wrong!
Harriet had me in stitches and I think it was because I could relate to the show. I have disability, I google a lot, read forums and have no idea what I am actually doing most of the time. Harriet appears the same but she handles herself much better than I ever could. She is also quite the line dancer…
Her quirkiness really shines through and you really can’t help but laugh along with her.
Russell had me leaving the show questioning if I was just really clumsy or should be getting tested for dyspraxia while Harriet had me leaving in a comedy bubble!
I would recommend you get your bum down to the Spare Room at the Caves, 9pm every night to see this gem of a show.
