Joe Wilkinson: My Mum's Called Stella and My Dad's Called Brian
Underpowered affair from BBC Three’s Him & Her
This article is from 2011.
Bounding on stage with arms aloft, the loveable Wilkinson plays around with his front row for a bit before settling into the kind of underpowered affair you’d rightly be expecting having seen his work on BBC Three’s Him & Her and onstage in Two Episodes of MASH. A Fringe oven is possibly not the ideal place to see a show about a guy who had really good parents who failed to screw him up and so failed to provide him with traumatic material for a career in comedy. The irony is not altogether lost.
