Massive belly laughs. I like a good old-fashioned belly laugh when I see a comedy show. Enter Jessica Fostekew with her new show, Hench. From start to glorious chanting finish this show provides belly laughs aplenty.

Fostekew explores various themes such as self-image and how those around us see us, birth and parenthood, all delivered with the raw power of a comedian able to command the audience and provide them with a cathartic experience like only she can. She shares her story in best possible stand-up fashion, finding big nuggets of comedy gold even in the most personal of experiences. It felt like everyone in the room could genuinely find something in common with her tales of a modern-day woman and parent looking outward and inward for strength, grace and wisdom and finding… well you’ll have to see the show to find that out.

This show will cure what ails you or at least keep you laughing long enough to mark it as one of the best you’ll see this Fringe. It’s pay-what-you-want or what you think it deserves and given you’ll see shows this Fringe which cost more than £10 but are nowhere near as good, I honestly believe it’s worth at least that.
