Liz Skitch - fractured and funny

Launching into her show from the back of the room, upstairs in the nurturing surrounds of The Butterfly Club, Liz Skitch makes quite the impression.

Liz Skitch.
Liz Skitch.
Donning a bright blonde wig, Skitch is a reality TV star, a runner-up on Big Brother in fact. She is here for an FHM photo shoot and interview, wide-eyed and scatterbrained.

It is the first of five characters trotted out by Skitch in her 60-minute show.

Others include a high-profile personal trainer, a brilliant riff on the Michelle Bridges and the Shannon Pontons of the world, a vapid, middle-aged marriage celebrant, a highly-strung PR woman with a penchant for small dogs and a rudderless bride.

All the characters receive their own 10-minute exposition, and Skitch has each perfected.

We slowly learn they are loosely connected by a wedding, and in the final 20 minutes it all comes together - the celebrant who insists on karaoke, the PR woman snidely commenting on the guests, the reality star-turned-burlesque dancer, the credit-hogging personal trainer and finally the bride, whose big day comes to a crashing halt.

While the characters’ storylines could do with some more exposition - until the bride is introduced they all feel quite disparate - Spoilt is a well-crafted show and Skitch brings her alibis to life hilariously, sending up five all-too-common personalities with aplomb.
