Miriam Elia : Original Review

Newbie Miriam Elia is hotly tipped as a talent to watch – and not without good reason, even if her formative gigs can be a hit-and-miss affair.

Even though many of her gags misfire, this young Jewish comic has an engagingly quirky streak, which occasionally bursts to the surface with a perfectly pitched line. There are some off-the-wall jokes here that any comic would love to have written, such as her ideas for London Transport’s Oyster cards or her brilliant take on authentic Fifties diners.

But at other times she hammers away at a thought even when it’s not producing many laughs, the prime example being her routine about being brought up by two artists, which ran out of steam almost as soon as it began.

However, there’s no doubt she’s brimming with off-the-wall ideas, which more experience will surely focus more consistently.
