Relevant, Quirky, Intelligent, Edgy, Clever

See it if You want to see a smart parody and observation of fleabag-style one woman shows that poke fun at the cliched tropes of “car crash woman”

Don't see it if You’re not into quirky fast paced short shows. There’s a lot of meta jokes and analysis

The Times (UK)
December 20th, 2022

“Like all the best comics, Kingsman has never seen an orthodoxy she doesn’t fancy questioning — her own included. It makes for an endlessly ingenious 70 minutes of fun.“

"I really am being serious here when I say that you need to see Liz Kingsman in One Woman Show in this intimate venue before she becomes the global superstar she deserves to be."

Theatre Weekly (UK)
December 19th, 2022

“Kingsman’s magnetism can’t unknot the metathetical paradox that has been created. Being self-aware is not a get out of jail free card that vindicates the show of its own criticism: it now exists in a strange chasm between what it is and what it doesn’t want to be; a theatrical Ouroboros.”

The London Evening Standard
December 20th, 2022

"...Kingsman executes every comic twist and turn exquisitely...Though nothing can upstage Kingsman. The number one comedy of 2021 is now also the number one comedy of 2022."

The Telegraph (UK)
December 20th, 2022

"Kingsman’s 'One Woman Show' is a magnificent satire on a certain kind of comic heroine, with jokes that run the full stylistic gamut."

Time Out London
