There are times during the Festival when you feel absolutely privileged to be part of a small audience but, more often than not, these out of the way performances leave you wanting to lash out against anyone who contributed to that hour of your life that was wasted. This being the case, Jenny Lion would be well advised to halt her performance.
As ideas for shows go, As Seen On TV is a stinker and it seems incredible that someone could even consider running a faux pub quiz as a comedy show. This approach might be excusable if the quiz was good and loaded with funny anecdotes and skits but, as it stands, As Seen On TV is likely to go down as one of the most bumbling performances in Fringe history.
Instead of employing any sense of a script or order, Lion chooses to mumble her way through a series of unconnected ramblings and spends a large amount of time chatting to her friend and lighting tech instead of engaging the audience in her so-called quiz. This is Fringe theatre at its worst and least professional and has to be given a wide berth.
