Serving Bait to Rich People

 

Review


Alexa Fitzpatrick is a waitress desperate for tips in the tourist town in Aspen, Colorado. Turning her misadventures in the restaurant business into an hour of stand-up, Fitzpatrick’s woeful stories do not endear her to the audience—instead, she comes off a little whiny and flat. People don’t tip enough and men are afraid of commitment: this ground as been tread countless times before and audiences are looking for new insights. There were some bright spots, like when she told us about serving Wayne Gretzky and Diana Ross (not at the same time, mind you) but on the whole, Fitzpatraick better freshen up her themes and fast. —Kathleen Bell

    Standup comedy is always better with a bit of a buzz so maybe grab a few at the beer tent beforehand. Even sober it was pretty great particularly with a personal background in the service industry. Definitely worth adding to your fringe list

    I found myself constantly wishing that Fitzpatrick would trust her own experience more. The ostensible theme of the stand up show – that she was a woman working in a ski resort that catered to the rich and famous- should be enough to draw from to make a decent, relate-able show. Why all the random other stand up bits thrown in? I don’t want to hear about someone’s life in New York for more than a few minutes if the show is supposed to be about life in a ski town. Frankly, I’ve heard better of that kind of generic stand up at open mics. The only original part about the show is the ski resort parts- more of those, please.

    I didn’t expect that this would be stand-up, which I don’t like. But she was funny enough.
