Carly Baker – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

Carly Baker, who was born and raised in Missouri but lives in Scotland, is a solid, but unspectacular act, fitting the stereotype of the slick and confident American – but with no stand-out lines to remember.

There’s some obvious stuff about the transatlantic translation of the word ‘fanny’, a bit of banter about her divorce and lots, and lots of sex talk. Comparisons with if.comedy best newcomer Sarah Millican, who covers similar ground, are almost inevitable, but Baker comes off by far the worst, as she has little of Milligan’s idiosyncratic guile or charm. Baker’s not bad, and passes the time amiably enough, but she’s just not brilliant either.
