REVIEW: Emily Atack @ Tyne Theatre and Opera House

By Emily Dudding

On Sunday night I visited Tyne Theatre and Opera House to see my first ever comedy show – Emily Atack, and I must say it was a successful show as I laughed the whole way through. After seeing Emily on ‘Im A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ last year and the funny, amazing character she was on the show made me want to see her live in Newcastle so badly. As she was also promoting her new book in the show, I wasn’t sure what to expect, never the less did she manage to impress with funny puns, anecdotes and dance moves!

Emily talked about the funny and interesting stories written in her book as well as different stories which we haven’t heard! Most focussed on her relationship with her sister which she loves very much, drunken shenanigans and crazy nights out, those annoying WhatsApp group chats, the panic of being hungover and much more including her thoughts about finally turning 30 (but secretly still feeling 15). I really did enjoy the show and I would recommend it as a good night out especially for the girls! The show lasted just over an hour, and as Emily drank her wine on stage, I thought that was a great amount of time for someone to just stand and talk to an audience for that long. I was defiantly impressed to say the least!

I really had a lovely night at Tyne Theatre seeing Emily Atack and I would defiantly go back to see her again, she isn’t just a funny comedian but also a lovely person. I would recommend the show to anyone looking for some laughs as it had me howling!!! I would like to say thank you to Tyne Theatre and Opera House for providing me with this great evening as well, the snacks and drinks available to buy at the interval was delicious also. I came out of the show happy, impressed and I am looking forward to reading the new book ‘Talk Thirty To Me’ and finding out more funny stories about this amazing character! Well done Emily, the show was fab!
