Review by Cathy Culliver
I know I’m not in Killick’s key demographic, being that I’m not over 40, don’t have kids and don’t get A Country Practice references. So I don’t think I’m being too controversial by saying that all the boobs, vagina, menopause and “crummy mummy” jokes in this show didn’t really do it for me. But that’s OK – like I said, I’m not Killick’s target audience. There were plenty of middle-aged women in the audience who thought it was all utterly hilarious however, so I’m basing my star rating on their reactions, not mine.
What I did really like about this show was the story Killick tells at the end. And not because it was particularly funny, but because of its honesty and emotion. I won’t say much about it so it’s not spoiled for you, but it was just great to see Killick stop dropping f-bombs and making mum jokes long enough to tell a truly memorable story about her relationship with her son and the things we do for love.
