Andi Osho – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2008

Review by Steve Bennett

2007 Funny Women winner Andi Osho has a very confident delivery, a product – no doubt – of her acting training, which ensures a certain level of laughs from the rhythms and emphases of her speech alone. But the material doesn’t really entice.

Her division of Nigerian women into either princesses or ‘bushwomen’, as seen on the No 25 bus out of East London, offers her the chance to impersonate both archetypes. But often it’s little more than a comedy foreign accent that’s getting the results, rather than any sharp gags or intrinsically funny observations. She’s a winning performer, showing the perfect balance between restraint and confidence, but the writing is fairly mundane.
