I AM NOT A GORILLA
Gloria is not a gorilla, but she is stuck in the zoo.
After five years of living her best gorilla life, it’s finally time for her to leave her cage and
re-enter the human world. But before that, she’s going on a date…
Life After the Fringe:
The Bill Murray (I was meant to invite industry to this, but I forgot to so I just did it for my pals)
The Electric Arcade (Brighton Comedy Fringe)
The Pleasance, Islington (Best of the Fringe)
Soho Theatre (Soho Rising)
My word. I Am Not A Gorilla is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before and I absolutely loved it. Posey Mehta’s one-woman show is a full body experience: hilarious and horrifying, delicious and disgusting; this is a must-see exemplar of the unhinged at the Fringe and I wish I could watch it for the very first time again.
The show's thematic complexity - the trials and tribulations of womanhood and relationships to food, for example - is expertly hidden under layers and layers of silly clowning. It is the most fun that I have ever had at the Fringe.
I Am Not a Gorilla is the performance equivalent of necking a pint of gin. It's fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pubes stuff and it's delightful.
