Robertson admits that virtually every story is true. We feel grounded in her comedy since we know we are laughing at genuine follies of life. As a result, we feels appreciated and included. The stories flow into each other, and even Robertson seems surprised when the hour-long show is over.
Robertson best talent is her ability to flip her stories to the unexpected. Specifically, flipping our expectations into something incredibly crude and brilliant, such as the realisation that relationship has suddenly become serious after a sober night together. As she relates her stories she is animated and knows the physical setting of each of her memories, as she points to the drunk in the corner and walks around the bar.
Robertson’s comedy is down-to-earth, fast-paced, and accessible. She ends the night with a Trump joke that gives us a good laugh, and puts us in a good mood while we travel back to BATS Theatre for more Fringe shows.
