I saw Karen at a corporate event for Bosch.She delivered a very funny set in a difficult environment.Very enjoyable.
Loud, brash and rather dull! Bog standard material with lazy put-downs. Production line just-done-a-comedy course performer.
A very predictable set with jokes which are easily forgotten about. Not bad but then again have seen much better.
Her subject matter embraces SatNav devices (the obvious men v. women number), kebabs, Big Brother, Poundstrechers, tampons… Hardly straining the leash of comedy creativity. But forget the hackneyed subjects, it’s how you treat ’em that counts. And Karen’s treatment is pretty damn fine. She’s as jeering as Jo Brand, as helter-skelter as Helen Lederer and as jolly silly as Jennifer Saunders. Banal but ball-busting, tight but flexible, fast and funny, Karen knows what she’s doing. And if you know what you’re doing you’ll look out for her.
Funny is funny, I saw Karen at Jongleurs last night and she ripped it. She had me in stitches, along with the mass of drunken, inflatable cocked hens and stags, which is no mean feat with their goldfish-like attention span
Funny but not spectacular, chuckles but not belly laughter, good but not great. I would happily see her again in a comedy club setting with other comics on the bill. I agree with the review, such promise, such stage presence, so good at putting down hecklers, great delivery, shame the hack material descends to sterotypical tampon gags. Average/Quite good 6/10.
Very talented and always brings the roof off. Brilliant. One of the best around
Reasonable compere. Warms the crowd up without being overstated. Maybe a bit predictable.
