Lucie Pohl: Cry Me A Liver – Review

Cry Me A Liver is a versatile sketch-show that sees Lucie sporting a wide array of accents to go with her stereotypical characters.

Her performance is flawless, and at times you just can’t help yourself but smile. We’re given a real show. From Putin’s sperm to an overambitious career mum, to a fanatical German show host, we’re able to observe the complexities of Pohl’s personality and her boundless talents.

She even lends us a true gem: “You know how you know who you is? By knowing who you ain’t is.”

Unfortunately, some of her punch lines fails to hit the mark. At times, her jokes about sexism seems less funny and more uncomfortable, and her show is ultimately let down by a poor script. Her slightly crude New-York style humour can appeal to some, however, for me it just didn’t work. Go watch the show with caution, and a basic understanding of Benicio del Torro.
