It was Fern Brady’s first time in NZ and hopefully it won’t be the last. She performed for only 2 nights in Auckland which is a right shame as this rising comedian is a force to be reckoned with.
Brady has led quite the eventful, outlandish life and she’s here to tell us all about it. Her thick Scottish brogue, dry humor and deadpan delivery are the perfect recipe for an hour of amusing personal anecdotes and witty social commentary.
Interspersed among stories of serving eggs to paedophiles, a drug-induced plot for revenge and a harrowing near death incident, Brady also dishes out her thoughts on dating, gender politics and mental health to name a few. We also get to know her anxieties, idiosyncrasies and what makes her tick, like her loathing of “tall-y small-y” couples and inexplicable obsession with wanting to murder her boyfriend.
Brady fully embraces her quirks and though many of her experiences are so outrageous it’s almost unbelievable, she convinces us to lap it up and buy in to the crazy. Her greatest strength is her innate ability to infuse comedy into unfunny scenarios, awkward situations and just making mad oddly appealing.
Suffer, Fools! takes you on a highly entertaining autobiographical journey through Fern Brady’s life. It is a candid and comic recounting of her colourful past that is thoroughly enjoyable, gloriously self-deprecating and packs a comedic punch.
