Lip Service

 

Review


If you like singing, dancing, and vulvas, Lip Service is the show for you. This high-energy performance lacks a standard storyline and relies on a 45-minute running joke of two women dressed in vulva costumes, singing popular hits and twirling around the stage.  The pair of actresses work in perfect tandem keeping the energy onstage strong; however, the singing and dancing bit gets overused quickly with the random and unrelated scene changes. Good-humoured, but slightly underdeveloped, the lack of direction in plot takes away from the performance when it becomes clear that the main objective is to make as many sexual references as possible. Packed with every vagina pun in the book, Lip Service is good for a few adult laughs but lacks an engaging premise.  -Janelle Escott

    Hilarious adult. Hard to describe but fun galore

    An incredible piece of theatre. I think the reviewer missed the point: in those jokes lies a very important message, and these two artists educate and entertain in very creative ways. Also, if “no plot” means a bad review, I think this reviewer should stay away from Fringe: there is only disappointment for them.

    This show was an absolute delight! Hilarious and thought provoking, with so much creativity throughout each moment. I would highly reccomend this show. This is Fringe at its best!

    Lip Service is such a joyful, brilliantly performed, and delightfully fringey show. It is a cabaret of vulva antics that I wish my vulva could do. From clever songs, to thought-provoking sketch comedy, to dynamic physical theatre, both giant vulva’s keep you engaged from start to finish.

    This show is not about plot. I hope the person who reviewed this show gets an opportunity to see a wider variety of live theatre so they don’t feel lost when a clear plot isn’t present.

    Who needs a plot when you’ve got two vulvas seamlessly leading you through the many witty moments of this wacky, wonderful show?
