A very dynamic young comedian who does not have to spend her hour resorting only to toilet and sex gags, a practice which is so revoltingly common at EdFringe. Have been quoting some of her jokes about cellphones and keys and apps for 3 weeks now, and that is my best tribute other than to say go see it if you haven’t yet! A great way to spend an hour of your life!

Gabby Killick’s central character is instantly recognisable as the clingy, shouty, desperate woo-girl who combines the fun of a hangover with the social grace of a hen night.

While it seems at first to be funnier to young women, the searing honesty with which Killick skewers her female characters immediately draws the male audience in, particularly when she, as a biased narrator, explains her ‘perfectly reasonable’ position and you immediately find yourself siding against her without even hearing the other side. If you abhor women who behave like this, you’ll love it and if you ARE a woman who behaves like this, get ready for a hard look in the mirror.

Older members of the audience may not be able to relate to current references like the personalities of apps (which was hilarious & well observed), but the heart of the show is relatable to everyone. The obsession with getting ‘likes’ may be new, but the craving to be liked is something we all remember. You may never have done any of the things her character does, but you understand grappling onto empty socialising to avoid facing the crippling emptiness of being alone. The show is absolutely hilarious, but you do ache for her character.

Killick’s energy and invention never flags and she is never still for a moment. There are elements of slapstick nicely punctuating the satire and character comedy. On the way out, I looked back to see if she had really done all that in about 5 square foot of space. Amazing. Absolutely recommended.

Enjoyed this show from Gabby Killick. Sharp and snappy and handled some technical mishaps with ease and comic value!

Only just managed to get a ticket to her sell out shows last year so planned ahead for this year. New show with new and hilarious ideas. Fantastic comedian. Such a funny perspective and clever jokes throughout and at the same time making an important point. A must see!

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 99 days ago

Gabby Killick acts out a very particular idea of modern women. As she takes the audience through her odyssey of partying, ex-boyfriends and cat flaps, she leaves nothing off the table. The audience will be laughing along for most of this outlandish set, delivered with drama and spirit by a...
