The Scotsman
Her star feels very much in the ascendant […] a hugely likeable and natural performer.

The stage presence of a veteran. She’s in complete control of the room the minute she is on the stage.

Hilarious and Relatable in equal measure.
The Skinny
Thoughtful and warm-hearted.

You'd think she'd been doing this for years... outstanding.
