Review by Jodee Lambert | 26 January 2022

When is a nipple a sexual object? When it’s not a man’s nipple of course! Laura Davis from the “foothills of Kelmscott” ponders this highly important question and much more in her insightful comedy show “If This Is It.” She is a powerful, anecdotal storyteller who invites you into her world with her self deprecating show. We found her to be very reminiscent of the underplayed style of Hannah Gadsby with her rapid-fire delivery, interspersed with moments of reflection.

Laura hilariously grapples over what her comedy should be about in this bizarre, Covid apocalyptic world. She drily says she “Would love to be telling stories about strange fish from ‘The Blue Planet’”, but feels it is her role as a comedian to agonise over important world issues, all in the search for “Art.” However much she argues about not wanting to be political or a ‘Climate Change Activist’, Laura does make her audience think whilst they are laughing at her gags. She really is the Sensitive Artist she disparagingly talks about.

Even when she cheekily shows us some of her body parts (you’ll have to come and buy a ticket to find out what they are!) Laura is questioning their validity in her show, “Is this Art now?” This is a comedy performer that makes you want to have a chat and a beer with her afterwards. “She’s someone I’d like to be friends with,” said my daughter. I find some comedians aggressive and a little overpowering in their sassy delivery, but I loved Laura’s rousing banter. Her comedy muse Jerry Seinfeld would be proud of her quirky and vastly amusing look at life.

Delivering comedy when facing a crowd of mask wearing faces must be incredibly hard, as we all enjoy seeing a great smile. Laura seemed a little unsure at times with us, or maybe that was part of the joke? Her ‘intimate, heartfelt’ approach created a show that will linger in my memory. Definitely a show I thoroughly recommend for all of us NOT so stupid people. Watch out for the line, “The mole with no soul that owns the big hole.” That's one I am going to steal!
