REVIEWS / TESTIMONIALS
“Her performance was electrifying, surprising and above all-completely hysterical. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. Her routine is fun, original, and brilliantly clever and she will not only win you over with her wicked sense of humour, but also the depths of her many talents! You’d be utterly mad to miss her show!”
