The Whore Whisperer - Mishel Laurie

In this show Mishel Laure relates her experiences of working at 8 different
brothels in Melbourne as a receptionist over a 3 three period.

The stage is set up to look like a reception area and Mishel starts the
show by acting out what it's like to be a receptionist at one of these
places (which means she is talking to people of the stage a lot who existence is
implied, something which you have to accept if you want to 'get' the show.)

In between these set piece action sequences, she talks to the audience about
working as a receptionist in the sex industry and even has some interaction
with the audience (which provided one of the funniest moments of the show
the night I saw it.)

All in all it was a good show, although not as joke-packed as other shows
you will see at the Comedy Festival. If you want to experience something
different,it would be worthwhile to see this show.

Rating: 8/10
