Charlie Covell at the 2009 Funny Women final
Though primarily an actor, the dry and quirky newcomer Charlie Covell shows considerable promise as a stand-up, despite some faltering first steps. Her opening remarks about feeling neither overwhelmed nor underwhelmed, but perfectly ‘whelmed’ had an air of familiarity, while her next topic – finding no lock on a public toilet door – must be one of the most common for new act to explore.
But she took the material down an unexpected route, much to her credit. There is much to enjoy in her tales of teenage angst, too, not least the dreadful poetry she reads.
Some of the gags need to be sharper, but while Covell isn't the most polished act, she is a potentially interesting one.
