Hottest and funniest female comedian on earth.
It's rare to get a mix of looks and genuine humour. Perhaps some of the above Manningesque male audience prefer a more subdued comedienne like Miranda? Tits
To Jack, who commented in July 2007. I assure you there is no laughter track - I was a member of the live studio audience at Teddington studios for two recordings of series 1 and one recording for the current series. As a member of the audience I was very much alive - at least I know I was alive when I entered Teddington's studio 1. The reason why the audience doesn't sound convinced is because the material is complete rubbish. Over two recordings they played a number of the pre-recorded sketches again because obviously the first audience hadn't laughed when it was first shown. I sat next to one woman who was telling her friend what a big fan she is of Karen's. But I didn't hear her laugh once at any of the live or pre-recorded sketches. By the end of all 3 recordings I attended the audience were silent from being subjected to this unfunny drivel for two brain-numbing hours. At every recording I attended Karen didn't even have the common decency to say thank you to the audience. She just walked off ungraciously. There's no doubt her show has potential, but despite the long list of writers, the comedy is disappointingly weak and defaults to the lowest common denominator every time. I was stunned when the BBC commissioned a second series. That's why I decided to go to one of the recordings of series 2 - to see if it had improved. It had not!
A one trick pony I'm afraid. Take away silly sexual innuendo and she has no act. Her act as it is anyway is totally unoriginal, Her gags have been done to death by nearly every woman comic, usually at the start of their career.
I love this woman, she's brilliant. Only comedy that makes me laugh.
Shittest comedian ever,hell yes!
Loved it! Nothing more to say other than can't wait for the DVD!
I think her shiw would be even more popular if it was on an earlier slot on bbc 3. She is well funny and i enjoy watching her act. Keep up the good work
