Review by Laura Money
Welcome to Gloria’s G-Spot, an interactive, music-based comedy game show hosted by the wonderful Queen of everything 80s, Gloria herself. Sporting her signature red dress, powerful shoulder pads, 80s make-up and bright green socks, Gloria gets you going in ways you never dreamed possible. When I say audience interaction, I’m really not kidding – so don’t go to the G-Spot if you’re just going to get cold feet, which are never welcome between the sheets! You will be rewarded handsomely for your interaction – the games are fun, tongue in cheek, and a little raunchy!
Gloria is a wonderful character – her sweet English charm is wonderfully accommodating. She greets you with a song “Gloria” of course, and declares her love for everything 80s and sexy – two words that usually don’t go together for some reason. Surveying the audience with her electric blue eye-shadowed eyes, Gloria explains that the G-Spot is a game show like no other. She brings on several famous icons of the 80s and 90s, starting with the amazing Vanilla Slice! This guy is hilarious, he interacts with the crowd and sends up the tackiness of the 90s. A quick costume change and a round of pass the parcel later (everything gets passed around in the G-Spot!) and we’re given a lesson on what we can and can’t touch (by MC Crapper) and a few fun games are played.
Gloria has a lot of guests in her G-Spot! Fabio drops in to launch his clothing line (this is the most apt and hilarious character of the night for the strong-jawed actor), Britney Smears teaches us her signature move, and a litany of ‘G-grade’ celebs help us all achieve bliss in the G-Spot. Of course, keeping us all excited is Gloria – this is a wonderful character, cultivated perfectly. Her enthusiasm and passion for fun and self-awareness is refershing, but mostly it’s her inclusive attitude and non-threatening audience interaction that warms you to the wonderful woman – even when we are all getting physical together!
Gloria’s G-Spot is cheeky, mocking fun. There are prizes (just for finding it!) and fun games with an adult twist. So, come inside the G-Spot – you’ll never want to leave!
