MICF Review: Jacqueline Mifsud “Be Better!”

Having read a bit of back story before the show, I was excited for what was to come – her story is empowering and great motivation to ‘be better’, if she can do it why can’t you! 

Remising about growing up and her relationship with her mother is something we can all relate to. Nothing being good enough and trying to take control, especially over a cheese platter… we have all been there! Mifsud’s hilarious take on the ‘wog’ family life left nothing to the imagination and had everyone in stitches as did her witty analogy to her spirit animal – the blue ringed octopus! 

As brilliant as the show is, her comedy can be somewhat a little dark and tackle some big issues in the media right now such as cyber bullying and eating disorders. Her take on this is still very funny, however could be a touchy subject for some.

The overall theme of the show is ‘be better’ and don’t be a d**khead, her idea of what makes a d**khead is fantastic and relevant to most!
