“Excellent Show about Iceland”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Andrea did our show - she was great..totally animated. Very informed re: icelandic history - was a great way to learn about iceland and we all participated in the show. Highly recommend it, and then can have a few beers upstairs at the pub.

“Entertaining and quirky history lesson”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Learn about the history of Iceland (although there isn't a whole heap of it to cover, seemingly!) and have a chuckle.

A one-person show, our lovely performer (we completely forgot to ask her name, whoops!) was very entertaining and had a beautiful singing voice. The show goes on whether there is one person or one hundred. The night prior to us there were 70 people in attendance - on our night, it was just my partner and I. If you're happy to play along regardless, you'll have fun. After the show she gave us her recommendations of things to do whilst in Iceland, which was quite helpful.

I think the show would be better with a larger crowd for atmosphere, as the pauses for comedic timing dragged on a little and made it seem like the show needed to be padded for lack of information. The show took place in the basement of the Irish pub instead of in the more atmospheric upstairs room, and I also think this affects the perceived quality of the show. It definitely feels too pricey for what it is - but that's most of Iceland, in a nutshell!

If you're up for a unique history lesson, consider checking it out.

“Unique”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

This show was very informative- unique, kinda awkward at times but worth the experience. The actress had a great singing voice and was very charismatic. It was a small audience in the basement of a bar so at first i wasnt sure i was in the right place- it was very entertaining.
