“Intensely Funny…Fireball of Fun” Timeout

“This show will be another boon to her career” The Independent

“I would recommend not waiting long to see her” Edinburgh Festivals

“Really all about the jokes, and she doesn’t embark on a path unless there’s a funny at the end
of it, and ideally a few smaller ones along the way too. She also has a winning delivery,
adept at misdirection, and speaks with the confident cadence that instinctively matches the
rhythm of a joke… stand-up you might expect from a much more experienced performer”
