ED FRINGE REVIEW Rosie Jones, 15 Minutes

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆


Rosie's intelligent debut is cheeky, charming and devilishly dark.


With so many great newcomers performing at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, deciding on a winner for Best Newcomer is going to be near on impossible.


Amongst those deserving of a nomination is Rosie Jones whose hilarious debut hour is full of unlikely punchlines, beautifully uncomfortable audience interactions and honest accounts of her disability.


Rosie has cerebral palsy and explains how the show is called 15 Minutes because she's only written 15 minutes worth of material, but with her voice it'll take an hour. She uses her disabilioty to her advantage as her slow delivery allows her to misdirect an audience.
