'Angela Barnes is a brilliant new comic with an excellent on stage persona. Her acidic tone of delivery and deftly crafted, punchy material make for a very funny set' (Trevor Lock)
'... brilliantly funny' (Sarah Millican)
'... warm autobiographical material with plenty of strong jokes... She's just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic... Like all the best comics, she manages to articulate a singular perspective while making it seem like a universal truth. And then she put jokes in it. Harder than it looks' (The Guardian)
'Angela Barnes is the best mainstream female comedian I've seen since Sarah Millican... I can't be any clearer than that can I?' (Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard)
'A beautifully paced performance that was aided by the consistent quality of her jokes, many of which showed a great skill with self-deprecation' (Chortle).
