Psycho-intense singer-songwriter Loretta Maine makes Courtney Love look well-balanced. This pill-popping, booze-abusing, bunny-boiling car-crash of a rock star has been the most memorable creation of talented character comic Pippa Evans to date, and is now promoted to both her own show and her own band, Dog Vagina.
'Funniest show yet, with miserable songs with superbly witty lyrics' (Time Out)
'Murderously funny' (Evening Standard)
'Fabulously talented... Her brilliantly realized comedy shows maturity well beyond her years... Her psychotic yet sexy American singer is a thing of hysterical beauty (Time Out)
'Beautifully bitter lyrics... Truly impressive one-liners... inspired, quotable pearls of wisdom... Fine comic writing underpins her flawless, perfectly timed performance
She's a relative newcomer, but has certainly got the talent for a sustained and stellar career in comedy (Chortle)
'Like Dolly Parton seen through the lens of Mike Leigh... she performs brilliantly
observed songs about love, loss and violent revenge (The Guardian).
