Isa's show was funny and she had some great material, I would definately recommend Isa's stand-up if you have not seen her before! However it was a bit of a shame that we saw her at The Cambridge Footlights a few evenings before and much of her material was the same, despite this we had an enjoyable time and enjoyed a quirky show.

One day the earth might be so devastated that we might need to leave for a distant planet. If that ever happened and I got a choice of who joined me in my shuttle, after seeing her hour of stand-up, my first pick would be Isa Bonachera.With a degree in...
