‘A voice of a new generation’…’she clearly captures a disaffected youth and world-weariness far beyond her years’ THE SKINNY

‘It’s not easy to talk about mental health in a full set, so to touch on subjects such as self-harm in a brief competition set was pretty impressive’ Bruce Dessau, BEYOND THE JOKE

‘Wears her heart on her sleeve as she discusses her mental health issues with a disarming honesty and a mordant wit. Distinctive, and she feels like a voice with something to say’ Steve Bennett, CHORTLE
