Pippa Evans – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Character comic Pippa Evans most often performs as scarily intense singer-songwriter Loretta Maine. This wonderfully unbalanced character flips between sweet and psychotic in a chord change, as she delivers beautifully bitter lyrics about the men – and the music business – that have wronged her.

The nuanced songs are great on their own, before you even consider some of the truly impressive one-liners between them. These inspired, quotable pearls of wisdom show that fine comic writing underpins her flawless, perfectly timed performance. Her set is subtle enough to be believable, but not too understated to be hilarious.

She’s a relative newcomer, but has certainly got the talent for a sustained and stellar career in comedy.
