Women of an Uncertain Age

Outrageous, shocking and disgusting that women over a certain age should even attempt to create a comedy sketch show?

Taking a wry and oft times tongue-in-cheek look at life, this double-act prove that ageing is not a confinement to doddery-ness but a celebration of achievement and things still to come.

Not at all. Encouraged, supported and lauded is what they should be, especially Flip Webster and Maggie Bourgein who have created a winner of a show with great sketches and well thought out characters.

Taking a wry and oft times tongue-in-cheek look at life, this double-act prove that ageing is not a confinement to doddery-ness but a celebration of achievement and things still to come.

Not averse to making themselves look foolish they carry comedy with gusto and have great timing and ooze rapport and confidence.

On a similar par with French and Saunders, this duo could well garner a cult following if they really hone their material. Their can-do attitude and give-it-a-go energy are impressive as is the show itself. Slick sketches from the top with a ‘60s Supreme song to an authentic Italian sexpot chef, the energy doesn’t drop once and the ladies are sharp and on the money.

Flip and Maggie work together beautifully, feeding and bouncing off each other they really have come up with an interesting niche that feels like it could be an endless pot of comedy gold.

A real pleasure to watch, let’s hope they go on with the show and delight further. Go for it ladies!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Middle-aged women: an Endangered species?

See them in their unnatural habitats and marvel at their ingenious use of camouflage.

Who says we’re too old for careers, sex, a social life?

Through sketches, song and dance, Flip and Maggie share coffee ice-cream, hip-hop moves and what it means to be 30+…well, thirty plus, plus…well all right, 30XL, in the 21st Century.
