Nikki Britton - One Small Step Review
Review by Callum Stott.
"Nikki’s performance is incredibly entertaining, and you leave the theatre feeling you have spent an hour catching up with her over a mug of tea."
As Fringe debuts go, Niki comes to Edinburgh with a highly polished performance full of energy and brilliant comic storytelling. One Small Step is a show that makes you feel content that no one has a perfect life, and those good moments can come from the most unexpected places.
Niki’s show One Small Step is fresh from being nominated for Most Outstanding Show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and she has adapted this further for Edinburgh audiences. Comically at several points throughout the show, she asks, “Does this Aussie reference translate well?” which it near-enough always does.
In the main section of the show, you see Niki trying to manage life in her mid to late 30s with the pearls of dating apps, self-help book quotes, and the occasional broken foot. I also loved the relatability in trying to create that Instagram-perfect lifestyle when on holiday, with her wishing her visit to Europe involved her drinking Aperol Spritz with stunning views and posting about her #WorkLife.
Ultimately, Nikki’s performance is incredibly entertaining, and you leave the theatre feeling you have spent an hour catching up with her over a mug of tea.
