Press Reviews

“Deserves to be a far bigger star than she already is …”
– One4Review ★★★★

“… jarringly surreal and inventively silly. It’s the Boosh-like oddity that clinches it”
– Andrew Collins

“Delightful set of musical comedy … wonderfully twisted … had her audience in stitches … well worth seeing”
– ThreeWeeks

“Well written and funny … very entertaining”
– Australian Comedy Review

“Reminds me of NYC Antifolker Phoebe Kreutz – both play ‘funny songs’ but through the sub-text and performance style reveal a vulnerability and open-approach to life that elevates their work and makes what they do as valid as so-called ‘regular songs’. Smart, funny and a real treat!”
– Lach

“… refreshingly testosterone-free comedy zone that still has balls …”
– The Stage

“You could listen to the lovely Ms Flynn all night”
– Chortle

“Impossible to dislike”
– Glasgow Herald
