Giada Garofalo at the 2009 Funny Women final

Note: This review is from 2009

Review by Steve Bennett

Italian Giada Garofalo promises some unique material about her country’s political class and Silvio Berlusconi’s antics. Unfortunately, like all politicians, she doesn’t quite deliver on that promise.

She doesn’t advance beyond the fact that her nation has a corrupt system, with the president making political appointments with penis, that makes British MPs’ expensive scandals look positively amateurish. Admittedly, she needs such an easy route in to the topic for UK audience who are unlikely to be up to speed with goings-on in Rome, but after setting the scene, she pretty much repeated every idea, just with a slightly different phrasing, with diminishing returns.
