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.

'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)
