    ★★★★ Watched 26 Mar, 2015

    Really enjoyed this fresh & funny show. It's amazing how enjoyable watching a female comedian who doesn't hate herself or other woman is. There was also 95% less dick and blow job "jokes" than the average [male] stand up show, leaving far more time for genuine humour.

    Absolutely astounding acting…
