Charming Irish stand-up

This ultra-lovely Irishwoman falls into the Josie Long school of comedy, with sweet stories, domestic references and endearingly crap Halloween-based recycling ideas. Thanks to enough well-told dark material – such as a surprise rape gag or descriptions of her mother as pet terminator – only an eejit would dismiss her style as saccharine. A delightfully intimate show.

Ultra lovely Irishwoman who tells sweet stories and offers endearingly crap Hollywood-based recycling ideas, mixing in some well told darker material. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
