21:27 10/04/2003 I arrived at the Town Hall early to get tickets to see Dave Gorman's show only to find that it had sold out already. Having seen Denise Scott do a solo show at the festival a couple of years ago I decided to go see the following. Comedy is Still Not Pretty Denise Scott, Lynda Gibson & Judith Lucy The show started with the three comedians doing a fan dance with deliberately dodgy choreography which ended with them revealing their skin coloured leotards with novelty rude bits drawn on - this lead to one of the funniest lines of the night when Judith heckled the latecomers "I'll think I'll just leave this unexplained!" In-between their dancing and skits each of the trio got to do a comedic monologue with the other two watching from the couch. Probably the best one of these was Denise's as she seemed to get so worked up about it even though it was not as dramatic as Judith's or Lynda's stories. The part where she talked about 'hormones' and yelled at some poor bloke in the front row was also funny. The skits they did with the aid of funny hats where excellent, especially the send up of the McLeod's Daughter's show "The Three Sisters" in which Judith got to play a worker with a permanent hang-dog expression wearing an Akubra and decided to spin a billy around for no reason. My favourite part of the show was when Judith and Denise had an argument which turned into a real fight (at least it looked like it) towards the end of the show. I would recommend this show if you like to see three people who are great friends work together and have a good time as well as providing a great performance. What is also good about this show is that you can bring your drinks in from the bar, which lead to people bringing in bottles of wine and glasses which you could hear the occasional clink from during the show. Something to take note of is that if you arrive late the only way in is to open a big curtain across one side of the audience which Judith will notice immediately. Thanks.
