Sooz Kempner: Super Sonic 90's Kid - Edinburgh Fringe Review

Sooz Kempner (not a difficult name to spell...) brings us a 90's nostalgia hour that people of *most* ages can enjoy even if they weren't 90's kids because of Kempner's descriptive skills. Talking us through her childhood obsessions, Sonic The Hedgehog and Les Mis, and traumas, Watership Down and My Little Pony: The Movie, we get taken on a journey of self discovery in which Kempner talks to her 13 year old self and her alter ego to find out if she's gotten the "good ending" in her life. Spoiler Alert: She's not doing bad...

I'd say that anyone who has been through their teenage years can relate to this show. We all have that dream job we wanted/want or an idea of what we want our lives to be and well, it's never going to go exactly to plan. This show discusses that and reassures you that everything is okay and your life plan will work out even if it's not the way you expected it to and that's fine as long as you're happy, you will leave with the feeling of a warm cuddle and a huge smile on your face.

With a mix of stand-up, powerpoint, music, singing and sound bites Kempner brings the comedy to nostalgia and self doubts. When you leave a show thinking "that was written just for me" you know it's well written. It's relatable, funny and charming and if you're around you should definitely check it out!

An engaging performance from a talented woman.
It's part of PBH's Free Fringe at Globe Bar at 1pm every day (not the 15th).
