    "She has a warm, confident presence that she combines with a great deal of boisterous energy and physicality. Her observations are accessible, painfully accurate and reflective of an artist constantly honing her craft. She works for and with her audience creating hilarious and accessible moments to which both creators and consumers of comedy can relate."
