Quotes from previous work:

‘Kotani has a magical way of telling a story… her imagination transforms everyday battles into something extraordinary’ ★★★★ (Scotsman).

‘A phenomenally feel-good show’ ★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com).

‘Uplifting story that will leave your heart filled and a smile on your face. I urge you to go and see this show’ ★★★★ (Entertainment-Now.com).

LESLIE EWING-BURGESSE: PHENOMENON (WIP)

A brand new and very experimental work-in-progress hour from your favourite London-based, 6’3″, Canadian, existential, green-haired, silly, spooky alternative comedian. She hopes she’s your favourite one of those, anyway.

“Funny and insightful, she is one to keep an eye on as she inevitably rises through the comedy scene.” – The Only Culture Vulture

“… her slightly chaotic nature and gimmicks made it feel like I was down the pub with a friend telling me some stories.” – carlymay.co.uk
