Nerine Skinner – In Two Minds (WIP)

16 April @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Nerine Skinner

Welcome to the world of BGT semi-finalist Nerine Skinner. One night in 2022 Nerine gained thousands of subscribers when she created a viral parody campaign video for the former Prime Minister Liz Truss that gained more views than Liz’s own. Nerine enjoyed 49 days of success and then her career was also over, thus creating a strange codependency with the woman! Almost like Liz is somehow inside her mind. 

Join Nerine for a jam-packed work-in-progress show of stand up, non-political character comedy and (loose) political impressions, from Liz Truss to Boris Johnson. Hear her journey of becoming a political impressionist and satirist overnight, neither of which she had ever done before. Then add the pressure of 15 thousand subscribers and trying to keep her fans interested with new ideas, even though all they want is Liz! Mix that with crippling indecision and an inability to work out what to do next, creating a recipe for disaster as she sets out on a quest to make a choice that she hopes won’t result in a horrendous u-turn like Liz.

Will Nerine find a new niche? And most importantly, is it okay to keep googling, “What’s Liz up to now?” Or does that make her a stalker?

“This comedian’s parody of Liz Truss is hilariously accurate” – Sophie Thompson, Indy100

“…Liv Struss sketches have been taking the internet by storm” – Oonagh Keating – The Poke

“Brilliantly talented comic performance” – David Walliams, BGT, The Dots 2022
